Discussion and Action:


The category of Residential and Commercial Painting was opened with the resignation of Mike Deulen some months ago. Daniel Ruffennauch submitted an application for that category and was interviewed by John Autry and Neil Arthur who fee that he would be a nice addition to the group. Another candidate in the same category, Daniel Korchuk of Ridgeview Painting was brought by Jim Martin on March 28th but has not submitted his application. We believe it to be a website glitch because Rob Amerine got an email. Karole Campbell made a motion to reach out to Daniel Korchuk and set up an interview. All agreed. Rob Amerine and Karole Campbell to reach out to him and see if there is an interest. Rob can walk him through how to access and complete the application if he still has an interest.

The BBB has not had a representative attending Prospectors Association. Karen reported that Karla Wink is willing to attend and has been promoted to corporate advertising sales. Karole Campbell has reached out to Jonathan Liebert and we await his reply.

Terry Williams is now back in attendance following his knee surgery.

Rylan Blair has been facing continuing health issues in his family, during this time he will not be penalized for his attendance violations as this has been an extremely difficult time and he desires to maintain his position in the group.

Old Business:

Updating the Tri-Fold. John Autry said he would reach out to Mike Bucher to find out details on how often we should update it but did not report on that today.


The website continues to be a work in progress. Rob Amerine got the link to the Member of the Week corrected for the scrolling pictures. He will find out why Karen is not getting all of the emails from the website.

Our next meeting will be May 16, 2023.
