  • Sun setting for specialized electrical and plumbing certifications is off the table for now and will be under further review.

  • Personal note, Jay will be moving to Grants Pass as his wife has taken a job in the area.

V. NEW BUSINESS
      Steven: discussion on sharing forms, handouts and SOP’s for jurisdictions to be more uniform in
      Southern Oregon. It was proposed that we extend the monthly meetings to allow for this to happen 
      regularly.
     
CJ: a call for membership dues to be paid for 2018 by those who have not yet renewed their  
      memberships. Some changes will be made to the accounting process for renewing member ships to
      make it easier to keep track of membership status and fees.

      CJ: recap on ABM, discussion about guest speaker David Spencer.
      CJ: ICC ABM meeting in Richmond V.A. attendees will be Sam Barnum, CJ Marincus and Ted Zuk.
      CJ: discussion about SOICC support for 3 candidates as ICC board members. Steven made a motion
      to provide a support letter of endorsement for Jim Sayers, Bill Bryant and Jim Brown. A 2nd was 
      made by Breck. The motion was approved by the chapter.

      CJ: some discussion about social media ideas such as regaining access to an existing face book page
      set up for the SOC-ICC chapter. Also, there was discussion to look into using the SOC-ICC website to 
      start a forum. The forum could create discussion amongst members from the varying jurisdictions to
      address questions, issues and concerns that arise throughout the month.


VI. OPEN DISCUSSION
     
The 2019 OSSC, OMSC and OEESC are still scheduled to be available in the fall of 2019.

VII. FUTURE BUSINESS

        time meeting as a group to align with our charter guidelines.
