He asked if the list was accurate. Andrea said it was. Ron asked if there was a motion to present the slate at the meeting. Andrea moved that we accept the slate. John seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Ron mentioned a message from Judy King in which she said that IMHPAC vacancies need to be posted. Ron asked Andrea, since she received the message, if Ms. King meant officer or member vacancies. Andrea said that she was under the impression that Ms. King meant member vacancies. Ron said that we could post them.
John then mentioned that he had written a four step plan for voting for officers. He said we had to be in compliance with the Open Meetings Act and so we had to have a vote by roll call, with people who are not present sending in a ballot and that their name would be read off and who their vote was cast for would be read aloud. John made a motion that his plan be accepted and that the deadline for candidate statements be extended until August 31. Andrea seconded the motion.
Ron asked if there was any public comment from anyone who has not identified themselves. Hearing none, he asked if there was a motion to adjourn. Andrea made a motion to adjourn. John seconded it. Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 3:36pm.
