Legislative and Public Policy Committee (LPPC): (Recommendation) The Executive Committee, has determined that the LPPC, which is at the forefront of UMHCA's advocacy efforts needs an expanded structure to meet the demands of this committee's scope of work.

Once approved, these recommendations, and related division of responsibilities will be written into the ByLaws.

          4. Approved Jim's map of facilities for inclusion in program and slides
          5. Rooms have VGA and HDMI connections.  Presenters will need to use those to connect their laptops to projectors.  We will have 4 available, one for each room, but its best that presenters bring their own to ensure "connections". Ellen will do that
        2. Approved Jim”s video/slide to show during conference
          1. We will project it in a loop, in the auditorium during breaks, lunch, and open times.

          2. Westminster agreed to sponsor the conference programs ($200 donation)

            1. Ellen and Paul will invite university sponsors to pay for pencils.
        4.  Tentative Schedule 
          1.  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CE3C-m2jDj5c_VtCR2lkt8JGryeLpwyXSwt-YvEl7Bg/edit?usp=sharing  
        5.  Presenters:  
          1. 22 -25 needed
      3. 11 confirmed presenters; 6 pending invitations

        Board members are asked to present twice:  Opening Session on March 15 at 9- 9:30 ( introductions and welcome) and Closing Session on Saturday March 16 at 11:00-11:50 (highlight your committees goals and projects).

         Committee members agreed to invite 1-2 presenters in the next week. We want to secure invited presentations by end of January.  At that point, we will begin a social media blast announcing our presenters and conference. A sample email invitation was provided.  And an online doc to log presentations was shared.

        Ellen will email all presenters in Feb to notify them of their time slot, remind them to submit their slides by March 5 as well as to bring a laptop with connectors (or advise us if they will need a VGA or HDMI connector).  

        Jim will email all participants their certificate of CEs after the conference.  

        6. Snacks/ drinks: 

        Jordan volunteered to purchase and manage drinks and snacks for the conference.  We will ask Julie for some volunteers to help with snacks.

        7. Approve Friday lunch:  

        Terri has confirmed Apple Spice Junction will deliver.  Lunch = $8.99.  Options: Turkey, Chicken Salad, Veggie.  Badges will have a code on them noting the selection made via registration form.


        8.  Discussed use of code words for conference attendance verification.

        We noted that the beta test of the code word system was problematic at the Fall mini-conference.  Some participants became quite irritated with the process, due to operator errors, confusion over code words, variability in devices, internet connection problems. Jim needed to manage some of those issues via individual emails and manually keying hours.  Presenters or Hosts would likely have a hard time remembering and managing codes.   Our concern is that these issues will increase 20 fold, given that we will not only have 2 sessions, but at least 22 sessions.  We recognize the need to keep attendance though.   We therefore proposed and agreed that instead, we want to have "Hosts" in each session who will ensure all attendees sign in to the session.  During the session the Host will log onto a SurveyMonkey account to type in the attendees.  The Host will also help should issues arise with AV or the room.  

        9.  We scheduled a pre-conference GotoMeeting, for all committee members, Julie, and the PRMM on Wednesday, March 13 at 8:30 PM.  At that time we will review the procedures, roles, and schedule.  

      4. Items for vote.  
        1. Do we need to vote on the attendance policy?  If so it is this:  We propose to have "Hosts" in each conference session who will ensure all attendees sign in to the session.  During the session the Host will log onto a SurveyMonkey account to type in the attendees' names.  Doing so will verify attendance and enable IT (aka Jim) to easily tabulate hours for the certificates.
