New Business:

Tracy Copeland informed membership as to why National Training Team presented sessions virtually. WAVES will no longer have ELR support during conferences. Vicki Henson, Cameron University suggested a survey be sent to the membership regarding the issues with not having ELR’s attend our conference. We need to make our voices heard as to what certifying officials need. Tracy Copeland will assist new board members with creating survey to be presented to National Training Team.
