December 2, 2010
The meeting was called to order by Quinton Simison.
The group discussed the date and location for the 2011 7th SHARP/VPP Conference. It was suggested that we look at going back to the Holiday Inn Airport. The date given was September 15, 2011. (Call and confirm the date with the Holiday Inn)
Registration Fee: Doing pre-registration if you register 15 employees and only 12 attend you will be charged for the 15 you pre-registered. (The extra (missing persons) are resulting in an excessive cost with the catering provider. We are charged by the amount of people we tell them that will be attending the conference. if we have less than what we guaranteed, the price is still the same).
Motivational Speaker: if you have a speaker that you would like to speak to the group at no cost to the Association. Submit names too Clark or Quinton.
Clark suggested that we form a Committee for a speaker and location. (If a different location is desired than the Holiday Inn)
