EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR REPORT: Plans and arrangements have been made to move the EVT testing on Friday and Saturday to the Phoenix Inn Banquet Room. This will save us on some of the rental expenses at the college.

Discussion was held on the graphic design for the tee shirts that were requested for next year. The decision was made to keep the same design as last year and put it on a black tee shirt.

FINANCIAL REPORT: Kerry gave a report on the budget and expenses incurred over the past year. He recommended that no changes be made from last year's tuition and expense schedule.

Kerry presented a proposed budget for discussion. A motion was made and seconded to approve the budget as changed. Passed

AUDIT COMMITTEE: Neil reported that an audit of the Association finances was completed, with no discrepancies found and recommends approval.

EDUCATION COMMITTEE: Dave gave a report for Rick, who was unable to attend. Hale Pumps is coming to the school next year. Rick is also trying to secure Jimmy Faulkner, this year's winner of the Boyd Cole Award, for some classes at next year's school.

OLD BUSINESS: David Clark and Dave Crawford gave a report on their attendance at the Northwest Fire & Rescue Expo on May 18 and 19. The new power point presentation with sound as well as the 3-fold flyers went well. Attendance at our booth was slow during the day but picked-up as soon as the on-site training classes were over.

NEW BUSINESS: Discussion was held concerning hosting 'satellite classes'. It was deemed impractical at this time, due to time and effort required by the Association, as well as our instructor resources.

A motion was made and seconded to rename the Gerald Nordlund Memorial Scholarship to the George Eisert Memorial Scholarship. Passed.

Meeting adjourned at 15:00

GOOD OF THE ORDER: Thanks again to Neil and Joy for hosting the annual 'End of Year' camping trip and Board Meeting.
