Eric Beun, Tim Cook, Paul Powers, Paul
Moses, Bo Arnett, Mike Ferguson, Charlie Miley.
Matt Shomper presided over meeting as incoming president.
Matt conducted a verbal survey those Executive Committee members who would be
attending the NIAAA National Conference in Indianapolis for purposes of determining
who Ohio delegates would be. Those
Ex. Committee members attending and also
serving as Ohio’s delegates:
Ralph Young (?)
Following the meeting, Tim Erickson indicated he would not be
attending the national; Mike Ferguson was selected to repr
esent Tim as
an Ohio delegate.
Discussion re: 2012 State Conference. There were two points that were under
consideration among the Ex. Committee members:
SITE: There is still split opinion of whether the economics (potential lower cost)
of staying at the
Crowne Plaza outweigh the location and “creature comforts”
that the Hilton
Eason provides. The Committee opted to wait until the 2011
Conference expenses are made available and asked Mike Ferguson to firm
“most accurate” estimate of expenses with th
Easton utilizing 2011
registrations and general conference format.
FORMAT: The consensus of the Committee (based upon attendees’ feedback)
was that the adjusted format used in 2011 was a success and accomplished the
intended goals of the changes.
Identified standing chair positions and need to select a chair:
Treasurer (Randy King named to
work with and eventually replace
LTI Coordinator: A motion to select Glen Gillespie was made and seconded.
Upon additional discussion, it was dete
rmined that two other candidates had
indicated an interest in the position; to provide for fairness and transparency in
the selection process, it was decided to provide each of the three candidates a
timeline to submit information regarding their candidacy
. Matt Shomper will
gather the information from each of the three candidates and distribute data to
the Executive Committee for a vote. The three candidates are: Glen Gillespie
(NW), Dave Bell (E) and Jon Payne (SW).
Awards: Will need to seek candidates
to replace Kip Witchey.
State Conference Program: Randy King will be moving into the Treasurer
position; will need to seek candidates to replace him.
Paul Moses reminded all that nominations for the NIAAA/NFHS awards will be due soon
for Ohio selection
