All members present (Merle Taylor, Kathi Brown, Darle Heck, Tom Hossfeld, and Kathy Ferris
Merle welcomed everyone back.
Merle let the committee know that when he heard nothing from the board since October election, he decided as committee chair to call the President, John McNabney, on December 14, 2015 and discuss what the committee had been doing. The President indicated that there was a question whether or not the committee was or was not a standing committee. He indicated it would be discussed at the board meeting held during the same week of the call. Merle asked John to keep the committee posted on any decisions. John also said he felt the committee should continue to meet. Merle has heard nothing from the President since.
Merle asked for discussion on anything members have encountered since we last met. If any of us had spoken with club members regarding the committees work up to now and where we all think we stand in the process at this point in time.
Kathi stated she has some educational seminars upcoming for the club. Those are great for feedback from prospective judges and how they approach our standard and the questions they pose.
Discussion of how to approach additional educational material in the Bagpiper to aid in understanding our standard. That could also include how to get better feedback from members on that type of material.
All committee members will consider creating short articles on education to better understand the standard. At least one of these might be able to go into the next issue of the Bagpiper.
Next meeting will be March 28th 7:00pm EST
Meeting adjourned 8:10 pm
