        1. Discussed Conference Facilities
          1. 4 rooms (capacity 93,93,40,40) plus auditorium (capacity 175).
          2. Fees $750 plus auditorium tbd.  Includes AV
          3. Cap attedance at 175 for now
          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.
        3. Approved Conference Program:
          1. Viewed Program and approved it
          2. Westminster agreed to sponsor the conference programs ($200 donation)
          3. Agreed to recommend that we purchase colored pencils to accompany the programs ($200).
            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.

    • Seeking authorization for up to $600 to do 2 separate mailings: 1 mailing in November for Call for Papers/Save the Date and 1 mailing in January for Conference Registration.  We plan to do mailings to CMHCs first.  If responses are low on either CMHC mailing, we would send to LCSWs
      • Conference fees (Friday lunch included)
        • $170 Member (Full Conference)
        • $115 Member (Half Conference)

        • Early Bird will be $30 less than each above noted fee and will expire 45 days prior to conference.
    1. ECGS Proposal #2 for Board Vote

      • ECGS proposes that that the ECGS be reconfigured into 2 distinct committees:  
        • a Graduate Student Committee, with the mission of providing outreach, support, professional networking, and education for graduate counseling students, 
        • an Education and Conference Committee, with the mission of coordinating the Annual Conference and Fall Mini-Conference as well as any additional educational projects.  
          • Rationale:  The ECGS has too large a mission, with too many competing projects to manage.  By creating 2 distinct committees, the work load becomes more manageable and targeted for each committee.  
        • Ellen Behrens nominates Paul Callister to chair the Graduate Student Committee.   Ellen Behrens would like to continue as the chair of the Education and Conference Committee. 
        • There are sufficient graduate student members to populate the new Graduate Student committee as well as sufficient members to populate an Education and Conference Committee.
