Dear STTI members, 

The International Board of Directors met by conference call on May 17, 2011.

The following reflects the decisions made, direction setting undertaken, and the information that was shared. 

Decision Making
The board reviewed, edited and approved minutes of the February, 2011 board meeting.
The board also approved motions coming from the Governance committee regarding: Clarification of the Chapter Probation, Revocation, and Reinstatement Process; and Electronic Voting Procedures. These will be forwarded to the House of Delegates for consideration at the biennial convention.

The board approved a refined policy and process for assessing and documenting Chapter Health, including a recommendation to review and retain current copies of all chapter bylaws at the international office. The board approved nominations for two honorary members that will be recognized at the fall, 2011 biennial convention. 

Direction Setting
Staff provided a status report and the board verbalized support for the MCHLA South Africa pilot funded by Johnson & Johnson, to be implemented in September, 2011.
