WEB SITE:                                                                                                                                     Jennifer said there is a new tab for videos - Judge Wait and Thom Hartmann’s speech when in Salem; she mentioned that there is a news feed tab.
 
EDUCATION - STUDY CLASSES:
Sandy said she thinks those who took the first two ten week Study Group 101 sessions need to take them again as a refresher.  Rich wants study groups pushed at all tabling events; his new de Tocqueville class might be ready in August.  There will be an education committee meeting soon.  Sandy will create tabling sign-up sheets.
 
HJM6/INITIATIVE:
HJM6 passed the House Rules Committee today!  Rich plans to contact Frank Dixon.  Dean wants us to reach out to more Republicans; Joel said we need to soft-peddle contacts with Democrats to show Republicans we are neutral.  The session will end 6/28 unless it is extended. 
 
National wants all affiliates to consider a state initiative in 2014.
 
STATE FAIR: Rich said there is not much luck getting assistance from the affiliates.  Portland may help; Grants Pass won’t help.  There may not be enough man power.  The cost will be $1,130 for a 10x10 booth.  The deadline for securing the booth is July 1.
 
TABLING:
Kirk suggested a motion to have a tabling meeting to set up an agenda at potential events.  Bev seconded it; it passed.  The meeting is 6/28 at 6pm at IKE Box.  Sandy, Bev, Cecilia, Anita, Caroline, Rich and Don will meet.
 
CONVERGENCE: National wants an Oregon convergence in the fall, to help us set and meet goals.  Discussion resulted in agreement that MPMTA needs to make it happen.  
 
TIMELINE:
Dean suggested that we create a timeline which shows our current successes and project future goals on it. 
 
MEETING ADJOURNED.
