One thought on “Meeting Minutes 6-19-19

  1. Edits – under President’s report there is no date for the TLI training. Under George Kiser’s report concerning the outside speaking role, REJIS is spelled with a J.  I know George has been putting a G in (I’ve made the same mistake in the past) but if you look at the email address of the requester, and the website, you can see it is spelled with a J. KD
