V Werner identified the purpose of this meeting was to organize the first meeting of the new section/chapter format in 2001. This includes:
· Half-day meeting from noon till 4:00
· Each section may sponsor a seminar 
· need for a site, date and mailings

It was determined that the meeting should be on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday that would be
March 6, 7 or 8th. Four chapters offered to sponsor seminars:

1. EMC
2. Magnetics (on transformers)
3. Computer Society
4. Power (on reliability)

Each of these four chapters need to submit a budget.

P McKenny suggested a minimum of 5 people so that we are not embarrassed. It was recommended that the registration brochure include a note indicating minimum attendance.

Requirements for CEUs were discussed - these included submission forms , distinguished speaker and a brochure. 

V Werner identified the following delegation of duties:
1. Brochure - Bill Henning
2. Room & Lunch - Jim Blaha
3. CEUs - Glen Wrate
4. Speakers, their biographies and budgets - chapter chairs, respectively
5. Keynote speaker - Brian Cunningham
6. Seminar survey - Larry Hause

Important considerations:
1. Sites were discussed - Brookfield area was recommended
2. Theme for the seminar - no theme was recommended
3. Lunch with keynote speaker but limit the charge
4. $35 fee, pending - $25 for students and $45 for non members
5. Coupon for next meeting in November

After a break, 
J Blaha discussed mailing date - January 10th was the target date to mail the brochures.
He will work with W Henning to coordinate mailing brochure (bulk mail). A four track format with three folds was considered. A send-back registration panel was recommended.

Further considerations included:

· Make announcement at December 12th meeting. Need date, location and speakers in order to do this.
· Include an optional cash-bar reception for speakers after sessions.
· Need a nice handout for each session.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:22.

- as listed above
