Unfinished Business

JCEP Website:
Dave has put together a NDJCEP website. It includes our Memorandum of Understanding, members, minutes of meetings, a link to the national website and upcoming meeting dates. It was suggested that links to all association application forms be included as well as professional development resources. We are to review the website and be thinking about additional ideas.

New Business:
