President Ellen Heath called the meeting to order at 7:50 a.m. Heath reminded the Board that GPA still owes money to ASLA for the spring conference. Heath encouraged the Directors to hold more district events in the future. Heath reminded the Board that the District 5 seat was currently vacant. She said she had spoken with Kristina Harpst who indicated a willingness to serve. Heath made motion to appoint Harpst as the District 5 representative. Heath stressed the need to move forward in hiring an administrative person to assist GPA. She said around $40,000 would be budgeted for the position. Heath said no, but added that the duties and responsibilities had been discussed. She felt 1,000 guaranteed hours would be needed to peak someone's interest. MEMORIAL FOUNDATION Heath discussed the memorial foundation and stressed the need to move forward with the project. Heath said David Kirk was looking for guidance in that area. Heath informed the Board that another meeting would be needed before the end of the year to discuss the work program. Heath said GPA had submitted four FAICP candidates for consideration.
