The new treasure Sue Kester, will take over duties once all bills are paid & the books balance. MAEMSE will keep the address as is.

Training Center Assistance:
MAEMSE would like to offer assistance to assist in raising the National scores. To help with any problems/ issues that training programs have. There is a concern for conflict's of interest. But that will be avoided if we have set guidelines for information to pass out or refer programs to.
* Look into EMS regions for numbers. Also ask them what they would like to see offered. Craig will speak with JoAnn.
* Laurie suggested letter to Don Beckering, inviting someone from the Chancellors office to be a liaison for their program. To see where we may be able to offer mutual ventures as well as work together. We need to let everyone know that we are here to help.
