Council was updated on the status of the competition for the registrar’s position.

A motion was passed to accept the May, June & July 2021 Revenue & Expense Reports as presented.

A motion was passed that in view of the restrictions caused by COVID-19, new licensees in 2020 & 2021 could not attend the 2020 & 2021 spring symposiums as they were either cancelled or done virtually, therefore the applicable licensees may attend a future face to face spring symposium as either a 1st year licensee (free) or 2nd year licensee (1/2 price).
