It's Been a Busy Summer

During a typical summer, HCGS Board Members tend to slow down and use the additional time to pursue their own research and other priorities.  NOT THIS SUMMER! You may recall that the Board had a meeting in January to brainstorm ideas for the future direction of the Chapter and identify plans for moving forward.  As a result of that planning session, committees have been working to update the bylaws, plan programs, study possible improvements in technology and make the Chapter as responsive as possible to the needs of our current and potential members.

The review of the bylaws has been completed and Board members are working to finalize updates to the Policies and Procedures Manual.  President Jeff Herbert graciously allowed us to work on these updates at his home. Past President Margie Mohr has worked diligently to complete this task before turning responsibility over to Kenny Burck. Hopefully, the membership will experience the results of our efforts during the upcoming year.

On August 18th Kenny Burck, Jenny Davis and Kathy Reed represented our Chapter at the 27th Annual OGS Chapter Management Seminar.  Kenny Burck was the Seminar Chair for this meeting sponsored by the Ross County Chapter.  There were nine sessions ranging from "Preserving Chapter Records and Publications" to "Attracting New Members for Your Chapter."  A representative from LDS gave an optional presentation on using the resources of If you've never considered attending one of these seminars, I highly recommend it.
