No vote – Motion tabled to June business meeting.
Motion from Nancy re addition of SLAA Basic Text citations to Op Scripts
Motion: To incorporate into the Op Scripts a collection of SLAA Basic Text citations - APPROVED
Motivation: Several members have suggested that our group incorporate more readings from the SLAA Basic Text as part of our offerings. A group of members has already volunteered to select, collate & edit a reasonably manageable number of citations. How the citations are selected will be determined by that group of volunteers.
