Be aware of 74C coming to legislation and what it can do for our association.

Make your representatives aware of the rewrite and ask them for their support.

If you need to see the changes that are being made on 74C, go to our website.


Grady Conner spoke on 74C – he has been involved since 1988.

Call your senators in your district and get them involved. New legislation calls for 14 board members for PPSB, these newly elected board members should be members of the industry.


Greg Scott – There is no other board in the world that is not made up of industry members.


Jack Fanning – Made a request that we send out an email about the organizations stand on 74C so that our members are aware.

Old Business



New Business

Fred McKinney thinks that the board needs to increase the cost of membership to at least $100.00.

Greg Scott says that we need to look into corporate sponsorship at approximately $250.00/year. Maybe the primary member pays $100.00 and then each additional member gets a discount.

Steve Mitchell stated that if the board raised the cost of the membership that everyone needed to pay the same amount because everyone was carry the same amount of responsibility not just the agency.

Paul Sequin encouraged the use of vendors.

Tim McIntyre stressed the continuing education as a way to increase membership.
