    3  Education & Conference Committee (EACC)  

    1. New Projects: 

      We have secured Dr. Caprice Hollins to do a full day online live conference on April 30. Her fees are $7,500.  We will offer a half day (4 Ethics CEs)  or full day option (7 Ethics CEs).   Three of us have attended her conferences and agree that she is the best presenter we've heard and that we learned more from her about anti-racism, cross-cultural communication, and social justice than anyone.  See her link for her TedTAlk  https://www.culturesconnecting.com/about-us .  

      We decided against an in-person conference because 1) Would we be able to profit enough given the high overhead (venue, catering) if in person attendance is low due to COVID? and 2) we don't have anyone with time to chair/organize such a conference.

    1. New Projects: 
      1. Business Partnership Agreement - great plan but needs refining. We have “discounted” and “reduced rates” as incentives but need to be specific. From the Conference committee: pricing of conferences -do we translate “discounted” and “reduced rates” to a specific percentage or do we give a number of free admissions? Marketing: banner advertising, logo recognition and link on website - is that possible on our end and what is that worth to a business? General: introductions at conferences, vendor tables, logo on specialty items at conferences, complimentary membership
    2. Update of Progress: EC wants me to meet with HMHI but until the above levels out, I have nothing to present to them
    3. Items for Vote:
    4. Budget Changes:
    5. Suggestions from Board: Do we roll out an online plan for this year and then change for in person next year?

    5. Public Relations, Marketing & Membership Committee (PRMM)

    1. New Projects:
      1. Removal of tracking from website
      2. Removal of Survey Monkey ($$); changed to Wispform, one casualty
      3. Membership drive: concurrent to conference (side-by-side cost graphic/what saved)
    2. Update of Progress:
      1. Marketing: Working on advertising for conference in April, almost finalized
      2. Public Relations: Will send out Facebook, IG, and LinkedIn ads to membership soon promoting conference and keynote speaker

We would like to pay the person/s who administer the conference  (e.g. registration, certificates) and will build a budget for that by February.

    3  Education & Conference Committee (EACC) Update of progress  in board

    1. New Projects
    2. Update of Progress    The Summer Series went well.  We had 151 registrants and 122 attended one or all sessions for a total of 81% attendance.  Engagement during sessions was good. There seems to be strong, continued interest in the online/on-demand sessions now available for CEs.  UMHCA  has earned $8,800 from the events, with ongoing earning expected to continue.  Thanks to Jim and Carrie for hosting and managing the events.  They worked hard and did a great job!

    Feedback was favorable, noting that the content was relevant, presenters were effective,  the low cost was compelling, and they liked the focus on ethics.  Concerns to sort out for future online sessions: 

    • emails with session links were sometimes "blocked" making it hard for some attendees to get access
    • tracking attendance is cumbersome given the platforms used
    • ideally there is a way we can show more faces (cameras on) during sessions, so presenters have a sense of their audience.  

    We now wonder about the possibility of doing quarterly sessions, live online (and subsequently available for on-demand viewing).  


    On a separate note, we have approved 14 CE seminar applications during 2020.

    2. Legislative & Public Policy Committee (LPPC)

    1. New Projects
      1. DOPL update - DOPL met 7/8/2020 and discussed SB 68, SB 23, and Telehealth. 
        1. SB 68 - Clarified language: Vocational Rehabilitation is a "practice setting" not a license. The licenses are Rehabilitation Counseling and Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling. Both are able to seek licensure currently as a CMHC through SB 68, the board did not go into the exact differences between the two and noted CACREP notes few differences. DOPL will be collecting data and reporting on how many applicants apply through this bill, how many are approved, and recommended changes in the 2021 interim session. 
        2. SB 23 - Licensure Portability: Individuals from other states can obtain a CMHC license in Utah if they have had an equivalent license in another state for one year and are in good standing. The board is working on clarifying under what terms individuals from other states would be able to obtain CMHC licensure. Discussed supervision hours, testing, practice hours, and scope of practice in other states. No decisions were made and it will continue to be discussed. 
        3. Telehealth - Typically, upon a client moving to Utah, a clinician outside of the state has 10 days to notify DOPL that they are providing telehealth, and are able to provide telehealth for a 45 day period. Currently Utah is waiving requirements during the pandemic only while the 'state of emergency' is in effect, which means outside clinicians can do telehealth with people who have relocated to Utah until the state of emergency is over. Once it is over, they will either need to discontinue at that time or apply for licensure in Utah to continue telehealth.
    2. Update of progress
      1. LPPC webpage revised - mission statement adjusted; working on adding in current projects, operating procedures, meeting minutes, advocacy interest areas, DOPL updates, and easy to digest information on licensing and rules.
      2.  Jim will be sending out in an email blast - update from AMHCA - On June 30, the Health Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee held a legislative hearing that included H.R. 945, which provides Medicare reimbursement to mental health counselors. This historic hearing was the first time that counselor Medicare legislation was evaluated as a stand-alone measure. All previous congressional action included our legislation as a piece of a broader health care package. We urge you to contact your Representative this week and ask him/her to include H.R. 945 in the House Energy and Commerce markup of mental health legislation. AMHCA has a template email prepared to contact representatives available at https://umhca.org/LegislativeProjects/9088595
      3. Anne is creating an email template to reach out to members of the Health and Human Services Committee in the House and the Senate. We will reach out to representatives on that committee that serve in Davis, Box Elder, Weber, and Salt Lake Counties. We will reach out to those we receive responses from and request their presence at a committee meeting, as well as build the relationship through exploring their interests in this area, providing resources, and determining where we can mutually benefit.

      There are minimal costs associated with the Summer Series.  We will purchase GotoPresentations for 2 months, which costs $118.  We will market using the DOPL mail lists that we purchased for the March conference (DOPL has OKed that).  And, we can store the sessions free online. Many thanks to Jim for researching and setting up the technology for this!

       Given that license renewal is in September, we anticipate that these topics will be in demand, especially if we advertise soon.  If we have the "ok" to proceed, I will confirm the presenters and we will begin marketing ASAP.
