1.                  Mr. Beuerlein updated the Board of Directors on the history of our 501(c)3 project. He said that he is confident that the application will be submitted before the Fall 2008 CSLSA General Meeting.

2.                  Mr. Williams said he has had recent conversations with Mr. Bayer and has supplied him with the additional information he requested. He concurred with Mr. Beuerlein's belief that the application would be submitted before the Fall 2008 CSLSA General Meeting.

D.Job Title Committee


1.                  Mr. McGowan said that one of the agencies had said they were not properly represented in the Orange County Chief's Association and feels that there are inaccuracies in the Job Title Matrix. Mr. McGowan said that CSLSA had not voted to endorse the Matrix and that it was a work in progress.

2.                  Mr. Williams said that Newport Beach was not going to argue the categories at this point. He said they disagreed with the committee because it was entering into the meet and confer arena where agencies in Orange County may use this information in labor negotiations.
