Steve McCombs announced we have 383 members (229 primary)! He also mentioned an upcoming vote listed in the Pacesetter for allowing electronic methods to vote. This would allow the annual voting to be done through e-mail instead of mailing in ballots, etc. This hopes to create more participation in the vote!
There was also be a vote to change to Pacesetter to online (PDF file) only. The vote was unanimous, the Pacesetter will change to PDF file e-mailed to members.
Steve also talked about the recent PCA regional President's Meeting in Peoria, IL. Items discussed were the upcoming PCA Parade in 2015 to our area. It was found out that the local region is not financially responsible for the event or required to provide assistance. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the national PCA prior to the event – there is a few years!

Another thing discussed at the President's Meeting was new procedures, regional event insurance (free for all events outside of the HPDE), and that our region's members are invited to any other region's events.
