Committee Reports:

  • Policy and Procedures Committee—No Report
  • State Plan Committee—DSB is waiting on approval letter back from RSA.
  • Annual Report—Dave Arthur presented the annual report and asked for suggestions on formats. DSB uses the calendar format. Other States use formats such as binders, booklets, or smaller calendars.

The theme has not been finalized but will be associated with the Rehabilitation tree such as branching out for success, grow to success, etc.
