Ms. Stenglein made a motion for the APIE Committee to create a letter to be sent to organizations to invite members of the APIE Committee to their meetings in order to learn more about their needs.

* Since our by-laws indicate that you need a Chair and a Vice-Chair, it was decided through e-mail discussion that Ms. Kucharczyk would take over the duties of Chair and Mr. Stenglein would assume the duties of Vice-Chair.  This will be voted on at the next APIE committee meeting.
