    Old Business

    • DC SHRM Board meeting 4/6 – Jammie from Coos Bay asked for the Board “get-together” with the Coos Bay group be moved to 6/1 at Coos Bay after a training planned there. 
      • Leanne recommended suggesting seminar topics with Coos Bay scheduling their own seminars.
      • Stephanie suggested giving Coos Bay a members-at-large report for them to contact members within their area.
      • Mention was made to provide a contact list of the DC SHRM board members for Coos Bay to use as a contact resource.
      • Stephanie suggested Coos Bay contact members in the area to be a core group.
      • Leanne suggested giving them a list of members we know from Coos Bay to have at the initial meeting, so we have more contacts than just Jammie as Stephanie suggested.
      • Rheanna was concerned that Coos Bay take responsibility for reaching out rather than having us do it for them.
      • All board are hoping that Coos Bay can get enough members to be their own chapter rather than being a permanent affiliate of the DC SHRM chapter.
