Welcome  - 

 

Monty welcomed everyone to the meeting and thanked the membership for coming. He identified that we do require all cell phones to be either turned off or on mute. If you do need to take a call, please take the call outside the room.

 

Monty wanted to start with the Board Reports.

 

Secretary’s Report  - Christine Covington

 

Christine identified that she will be sending another invitation to those members who have not yet joined the newsgroup. Please take the time to accept the invitation. It takes more effort and time that you realize to go back and research who is and is not on the newsgroup.

Ethics & By-Laws  - Larry Flannery

 

Larry wanted to remind us that if we find out about unlicensed activity, please notify Larry so that he can file a complaint on behalf of the association.

 

Larry wanted us to know that the PPSB is finally dealing with some unlicensed activity. One case was addressed yesterday. Another has been prosecuted.

 

The PPSB seems to be receptive to our efforts to combat the problem. 

 

Motion to accept.

John has deferred his report to Monty since he had been unable to attend the 74C rewrite meeting.

Training & Education  - Thalia Ellis

 

The Unarmed guard manual is in its evaluation period for the new 16-hour program.

 

There are 2 manuals, the student manual and the Instructor manual. The only real difference is that the student manual does not have the slide notes.

 

John Greico has been put in charge of a panel for the evaluation process.

 

Grandfathering – 4 hours training (as long as you keep current). If you lapse, you have to go through the 16-hour training.

 

US Security – Roswell, GA has 6-branch offices wants interactive basic training. The PPSB wants to consider it. They will be sending a couple of members to evaluate the site.


Fire Arms Training has been cancelled for Salemsburg this month.

 

Motion to Accept.
Seconded.
Accepted.

 

Membership - Ted Gartman

 

Our current membership is 202. This includes 12 Associate/Staff Memberships.

 

Ted wanted to let us know that the Membership Application that fell off the website has been corrected.

 

Ted also re-introduced the idea of appointing Regional Directors. The easiest way may be to divide by Area Codes. The directors would be responsible for holding periodic informal meetings or luncheons, which would inform and entice investigators who are not members to join the association. The state would be broken up into 6 regions. 


Monty identified that when we had these meetings in the past, 25-30 investigators come to the “Breakfast Meeting”. It gives information as to where the Association is heading. It gives a chance to meet new PI’s. Gives another opportunity to invite them to identify their issues and join the Association.

 

Monty identified that he would be glad to try to attend any meeting.

 

Ted also identified that he had been working on the Membership Certificates. We had to delay presentation of the Certificates since next years President has not been elected.

 

 

Motion to Accept.

Seconded.

Accepted.

 

Speakers  - David Henning & Pat Henderson from Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc.

 

Identity Theft and Pre-Paid Legal.

 

You are 2 times as likely to end up in court than in a hospital. For $26.00 a month, or less, you can be covered.

 

ID Theft is the fastest growing white-collar crime. 10,000 victims. $5 billion dollars a year.

 

$9.95 a month is cost to add the basic ID Theft Shield.

$12.95 is the stand-alone cost of ID Theft Shield.

 

 

 

Treasurer’s Report  - Bill Fletcher

 

Marti identified we have the following in our accounts:

 

$     808.30   Pac Fund

$  3,505.00   Lobbyist Fund

$22,128.98   Checking

$26,442.28   Total

 

Lobbyist Fund  - Bill discussed that we had sent an email to the members who contributed to the Lobbyist Fund. There was a very small response, so Christine identified that she would make contact again to try to resolve that issue.

 

We have decided on the Legal Action Committee and both Bill Fletcher and Ruth Reynolds have been put forth as possible representatives for us.

 

Russ identified that he believes we should really bring this up at the Annual Meeting for a decision on the plan. He identified we have no current information on who, what, how much, are we paying for just expenses, or are we paying a salary as well.

 

Motion to accept.

Seconded.

Accepted.
