OLD BUSINESS

MEETINGS

Celeste Bondurant-Bell share with the group some of the comments from the past meetings concerning having a Fall & Spring meeting of CAPS.  Last year it was decided that CAPS would meet for the full conference in the Spring and have a one-day, panel meeting in the Fall at a central location.  Celeste asked if that was still the preference of the group and discussion followed.   Consensus followed that we would follow the same format and meet again this Fall in the Charlotte area for a Sunday night and Monday morning meeting.

Discussions then turned to alternative locations for our Spring conference.  Places suggested by various members included Grove Park Inn in Asheville, Charleston, Defuskie Island, Kingston Plantation and Pinehurst.  The majority voted in favor of Kingston or some other location in the Myrtle Beach area.
