It was pointed out that some time ago a recommendation was made that officers for the District submit a brief description of their job duties and responsibilities so that we could incorporate them into a handbook for succeeding officers. These will be brought to the District meeting in Oct and discussed and when finalized they will be posted on website.
The District accepted a written resignation from Janell J, Secretary. Bill D was appointed to complete term of duty ending in Dec. 2009. The District would like to thank Janell for her service and we hope that she will continue to be active in the District.
District's next workshop will be held Saturday November 7 at United Methodist Church in Corunna (pending approval for use by the Church). Ron C suggested “Self Support” as a theme and Roger C suggested that be combined with “Home group”. District will finalize planning for the workshop at October's meeting. Ron C accepted position of Chairman for this workshop and will assemble a committee to plan and organize.
After some discussion; the District moved to reimburse our District Committee Member (DCM) Rick C for travel expenses in his job as DCM.

It was pointed out that his trip to represent us in Alpena was 400 miles in addition to his past expenses as our DCM. This policy will remain in effect as well for future DCM's.
