Ms. Jacobsen presented a report on the legislative session.  She reported that this next year would be best spent informing and educating legislators and senators.  Mr. Hatch stated that the Board and ASLA should be more involved in the education process.  Ms. McGown stated that this next year the Board should work on the rules, as this years legislation was presented as a housekeeping effort.  She stated that any additional changes to the law should be held off for a couple of years. 

Mr. Hetrick presented the financial report.  The appropriation balance for this fiscal year is less than $150.00.  Mr. Hetrick stated that the Bureau is making an effort to keep the Board apprised of their finances on a monthly basis.  The financial report will be posted on the web page with updates each month.  Due to security issues the investigative staff will proctor the examinations.  Mr. Dial explained that security was a major issue at the CLARB Spring Meeting.  

Mr. Hetrick presented the investigative report.  There have been no complaints this fiscal year.  Discussion was held on telephone book advertisements and the complaints that accumulate from these advertisements. 

Mr. Dial presented his report on the CLARB Spring Meeting in Texas.   The examination was discussed.  Section A is not being passed as frequently as Sections C, D, and E, and Section B is about the same.  CLARB’s budget was discussed during the meeting, raising a considerable amount of controversy.  The Board is concerned that CLARB may not have enough accountability to the Boards.  

Continuing Education was discussed.  The board will propose rules addressing the  requirements for continuing education.  This matter will be tabled until the next meeting of the Board at which time various suggestions will be considered. 

Applications were reviewed.  Talena Dovel was approved for examination.  Charles Keck and Kent Watson were approved for licensure through endorsement. 

Meeting adjourned at 11:37 a.m.
