Chairman Harris called the meeting to order at 9:05a.m. 

Robert Skinner moved to approve the minutes of November 2, 2001 meeting as read.  Al Lopez seconded the motion, motion carried. 

Rayola Jacobsen introduced David Hahn from the Division of Financial Management. 

Terms of office for Robert Skinner and Al Lopez expired 1-1-2001. Mr. Skinner stated that he is not willing to serve another term.  Al Lopez stated that he is willing to serve another term if reappointed. 

Kay Youngerman’s term of office expired 1-1-2002 and letters have gone to the Governor’s office for appointment or reappointment. 

Ms. Jacobsen reported that the legislative session ended well, the Bureau being successful with the other Boards’ law and rule proposals.  She also reported that the new licensing system for the Bureau is up and running well. 

Mr. Hetrick presented the financial report showing a positive balance of $12,150.25.  

Discussion was held on the investigative and legal process. The Board was advised that since they are the ultimate judges regarding complaints, they must guard against becoming prejudiced prior to formal hearings. The Bureau provides investigative services for the Board.  The Board could assign one of its members to serve as a complaint liaison, but that member would be recused from any future Board action and could not discuss cases with the other members. 

The Board was advised not to take calls or inquiries concerning complaints and to direct all complaints to the Bureau. 

Discussion was held on proposed law and rule changes:

        Adopting ethical rules

        Limiting the number exam re-takes without further education. 

Al Lopez moved that when the exam is failed the second time, the applicant cannot reapply for examination for one year. Carla Wolfrum seconded the motion, motion passed. 

The Board requests that all licenses receive a new law book, done in the small format, and a pink card. 

At this time there is no provision for when a license has lapsed to require continuing education to reinstate the license.  The reinstatement falls back on the Bureau law.

Continuing education requirements would have to be added to the reinstatement requirement. 

Five applications were reviewed: 

        One applicant was approved for internship 

        Three applicants were not approved for examination/internship.  More information on education and/or experience is required. 

        One applicant was approved to retake the written portion of the examination. 

        Continuing education was approved for one licensee. 

The next Board meeting will be held in conjunction with the Denturitry Association meeting on September 6-7, 2002 at the Owyhee Plaza Hotel.  The Board meeting will be on Friday morning starting at 9:00a.m.  The Association Convention will begin approximately at 1:00p.m. Friday and 9:00a.m. Saturday. 

Having no further business before them, the meeting adjourned at 12:30p.m.
