1.      Introductions and Technology, Welcome New Members.


2.     Training, Orientation & Updates

a.     Sam Wheeler has left ICCB, Brian Durham is filling this role until someone is hired.

b.     Adam Julian has left IAI as Web Programmer, and Janice Leuchtenberg was out of the office for 6 weeks medical leave, so Krista was very busy.
