3.0       Approval of Agenda - Bill Sparks

            Several changes were made to the agenda and approved for the meeting.

 

3.1       Motion to Amend the Agenda

            3.01     Special Task Force Report - John Massengale and Hally Poindexter

                        R. Martens suggested building stronger affiliations with administrators could be a way to increase membership.  Again, the idea of inviting CUAC to join NAKPEHE for a pre-conference session was proposed.  R. Feingold indicated that there are many issues facing administrators and no one is really addressing them.

                       

                        J. Massengale and H. Poindexter are happy to co-chair any meetings in the future around discussions of this matter.

 

4.0       Officer Reports

            4.01     Past President - Marilyn Buck

                        The contract has been signed with the Marriott (formerly the Radisson Sand Key ) in Clearwater for the 2007 conference, January 4-7.  The hotel will provide all comp sleeping rooms and conference room for the FDCπs meeting prior to the conference.

 

            4.02     President - Bill Sparks

                        The distribution list for communicating with the Executive Committee, Board of Directors and Committees has been set-up.  One of the major emphases of the year will be to increase membership.

 

            4.03     President-Elect - Ginny Overdorf

                        The FDC meeting is scheduled for May 8-9 in San Diego.  Ginny is seeking prospective funding sources for the Homans Lecture and has several possibilities which she will follow up on for a report at the next Board meeting.

 

            4.04     Vice President - Bill Forbes

                        The NAKPEHE  booth is set up in the AAHPERD Exhibits for the duration of the convention.  The new brochures displaying the associationπs new name were printed in time for distribution to prospective members who visit the booth. So far, about 100 people have entered the drawing for free membership.   Information about the conference in Tucson will be put on the web.

 

            4.05     Vice President-Elect - Camille O'Bryant

                        The Conference Planning Guide updated by B. Ruhling has been very helpful.  Flyers announcing the 2006 conference in San Diego are also available at the NAKPEHE booth.

 

            4.06     Secretary - Beverly Mitchell

                        There was nothing to report.

 

            4.07     Executive Secretary/Treasurer - Jackie Lund

                        Report included information on the membership and how the numbers this year compare with those one year ago.  The biggest positive change was with graduate students, probably attributed to the Leah Fiorentinoπs work with the Doctoral Postal Presentations.  Jackie also provided account balances and comments on the budget as well as recommendations.

 

5.00     Old Business

            5.01     Follow-up  2004 Conference - Marilyn Buck

                        See 4.01

 

            5.02     Final 04 Conference Report ≠ Jan Rintala

                        A complete report was submitted to show income and expenses.  A total of 133 registered for the conference and a total of $23,391 was generated by the conference.  After all expenses were accounted for, the net profit to the association was $5,564.24.

 

            5.03     Human Kinetics Contract

                        Several issues were discussed with Rainer Martens including how to generate more income from the publications.  R. Martens offered to purchase Quest with the understanding that HK would not take over editorial matters.  The discussion led to a motion to transfer ownership of Quest to HK but the vote was unanimous against the motion.  Reasons cited:  ≥it is our heart and soul≤, ≥our identity≤, and an honored, top quality journal.  We would be losing a lot by giving it up.

 

                        Motion 1:  Move that the President sign the original contract with Human Kinetics. By G. Overdorf and seconded by R. Feingold.  Approved.

 

                        J. DeSensi and B. Sparks will contact HK to request that a NAKPEHE membership form be included in each issue as well as conference announcements and statement of ownership.

                       

            5.04     Membership ≠ Newton Jackson

                        Consider identifying members and board members to serve the NAKPEHE booth at district and state conferences. Covering expenses may be an obstacle.  Also identify and target junior faculty in departments as prospective members.

                       

            5.05     PE Links-4U ≠ Carol Wood

                        The primary emphasis is K-12 dialogue.  Originally it was to facilitate discussion of issues related to physical education higher education.  The shift is now to on-line articles.  Suggestions were made to have them link to our webpage and for Carol and publicationsπ committee to work together on recommendations for the January 05 Board meeting.

            6.04     Gender Rotation

                        From M. Andersonπs Elections Committee, discussion centered on deleting the forced rotation for the Office of Secretary.  The following motion was proposed in the Committeeπs report:

                        Motion 2:  Recommend removing requirement to alternate male/female candidates for Office of Secretary.  Approved. Responsibility:  Committee is to write one view and J. DeSensi will write the opposing view, both of which will appear in the Chronicle in the fall issue.  Due date:  deadline for fall issue.

 

                        This action will require a vote by the membership at the next Business Meeting in January.

 

            6.05     Strategic Planning Process

                        The Board referred to parts of S. Kovarπs 2004 Homans Lecture.  The FDC will use the materials as a structure for discussing membership and plans for the future of the Association.  N. Jackson will also send recommendations from the Membership Committee to S. Estes, chair of the FDC.  FDC could also make a recommendation about the budget needed to have the NAKPEHE booth at district and state meetings.

 

            6.06     Request for Membership List
