By , August 2, 2010 1:41 pm

Attendees: Mort Brinchmann, Tina Ching, Robyn Hagle, and Christy Leith.
Location: Perkins Coie, Seattle WA
Time: The meeting was called to order at 9:08am by President Hagle.

  1. Code Reviser Survey
    The Washington Code Reviser is conducting a survey on the Washington Administrative Code and the Session Laws.  It is available at http://www.leg.wa.gov/CodeReviser/Pages/default.aspx.   Peggy Jarrett thought LLOPS should reply to the survey as an organization.  The board thought it might be more effective if many LLOPS members and clients responded and suggested that Peggy make an announcement to the LLOPS membership about the importance of filling out the survey.
  2. Blog Update
    The Newsletter/Blog committee requested permission to use the online service Blog2Print to periodically archive the LLOPS blog.  It will cost $8 each time the blog is archived to a pdf.  M/S/A to allow the Newsletter/Blog committee to archive using the Blog2Print service.  President Hagle will follow up with the committee regarding the frequency of archiving.
  3. LLOPS Archive
    AALL chapters can send items to be included in the official AALL archives in Chicago.  The Board discussed sending the Professional Development Award plaque and the letter from President Catherine Lemann letter congratulating LLOPS on its 20 year anniversary.  President Hagle will ask Rick Stroup about the LLOPS archive at the King County Law Library.
  4. Inventory of State Legal Materials
    Volunteers are needed for the inventory of Washington state legal materials. This survey is being coordinated by the AALL Government Relations Office.  Please contact co-coordinators Kay Newman or Tina Ching for additional information.
  5. Community Outreach
    A Community Outreach grant was not awarded this year due to work on the Heller Erhman collection. The committee is currently working on the inventory of materials in that collection. The Board should consider this as a factor when determining the amount allotted to grants next year.  The Board discussed whether the committee can award a grant without submitting an application.  This suggestion will be made to the committee for next year.  The Community Outreach committee may need to be added to the bylaws and the committee description in the handbook may need to be changed as a result.
  6. LLOPS June Meeting
    The June business meeting at the Federal Courthouse will include committee reports, the treasurer report and the 20th anniversary celebration.

Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 10:05am.
Respectfully submitted by Tina S. Ching, LLOPS Secretary.
