  1. Board
  1. Shaun reported that attending the State Leadership Conference was a great experience. She learned a lot and recommends SCPA consider adding a line item in our budget to send the President and the President-Elect to the conference each year. In the event the costs associated are not covered by the attendees company SCPA will pay for the registration fee, plus mileage and the hotel. Estimated Total Cost - $500. The President and the President-Elect must submit for a request for approval from the board prior to registering. Kelly seconds. Motion Passed.
  2. The board had discussed an idea of adding a section to the agenda to celebrate a personal success. This area will be called “The Buzz”. Every month we will highlight a person/s that achieved a personal goal, or has an item to celebrate.
  3. We will be adding a PowerPoint presentation that will play in the background while the members eat their lunch. This ppt was introduced to Shaun during the Leadership Conf. It will be a combination of announcements, various business updates, and other information we want to get out to the group. Shaun will put the first PP together for the September meeting.
  4. Shaun is looking at the organization’s brochure and looking to update it and incorporate testimonials. Will look to other SHRM state organizations for ideas.
