At the last board meeting, members of the NC EAPA Board discussed ways to insure that NC EAPA members are receiving the full value of their membership.
One of the items the board members voted on was deciding that only NC EAPA members will receive a discounted rate for quarterly training and the March Conference. That is a huge discount!
Another benefit of being a NC EAPA member is being a part of the listserv to receive email on EAP related topics, training, and job openings. And of course, NC EAPA members have access to great networking opportunities, which we all know is an important resource for EA Professionals.
All of that for only $40.00 per year!
International EAPA has been working to help speed up the process of becoming a member and renewing membership, but please remember that renewing prior to your lapse date will insure that you won't miss out on any of the benefits of membership.
The LEAP Board meets the last month of each quarter. All applications (new and renewal) must be postmarked by the last day of the previous month in that quarter.(i.e. LEAP Board meeting June 18, the application must be postmarked May 31.) Applications are available by contacting Jo Yarbrough at j.Yarbrough@nc.net or Midgie Brawley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't forget the 25th Anniversary of NC/EAPA's March Training Conference coming up March 10-12, 2004! EAPs: The Silver Lining is our theme and was chosen to reflect our anniversary and the tasks we as EA Professionals face in helping our employee / employer clients in renewing hope and motivation after our country's recent trials.
New location for 2004 will be the Hyatt Charlotte at SouthPark. The Planning Committee is very excited about their facilities, their location and their staff's commitment to making our Conference a great success. This area has lots of great restaurants and shopping, as well as this Hyatt's fabulous food.
Speakers are being identified and contacted by Planning Committee members who will not only educate our membership, but help us as professionals renew ourselves and our efforts. Also, the Membership of NC/EAPA is being asked to submit proposals for presentations, through NC/EAPA listserv and On-Liner.
Our Silver Anniversary means there will be lots of special and fun events to commemorate this auspicious occasion. So plan to be there and contact me or any of the Planning Committee members with your ideas (704-355-5021 or e-mail email@example.com).
The Liner is now completely electronic. In order to be notified when the latest edition is available on the Web site you will need to make sure Andy Silberman has your correct email address. If your email address changes or if you want to be added to the listserv, contact Andy at Andrew.Silberman@duke.edu.

Standing Committee Reports

In his absence, John sent the following report:
Membership – Dawn Klug
Dawn reported the following statistics as of August 4, 2003:
Dawn stated that the Board will start enforcing that NC EAPA members only will receive the members fee for all NC EAPA conferences, including the March Conference. All non-NC Chapter members will pay the non-member fee.
Education & Training – Karen Molli
In Karen's absence, Joan Radford reported that the October Conference will be held on October 17th at First Health in Pinehurst, NC. Peter Nagel will present on Personality Adaptations. Fifteen people are registered for the August Conference.
Research and Information – Miriam Bundy
In her absence, Miriam submitted the following report:
John Howard and I have been working on a survey to send out to NC EAPA members requesting information on credentials, etc. The cover letter and survey are ready to be sent out in either September or October when people are back from vacations.
Outreach – Eileen Hodiak
By-Laws – Elaine Jenkins
In Elaine's absence, it was reported Elaine is working on changes in the Chapter's By-Laws.
Technologies – Andy Silberman
Andy reported that there are only about 20 current NC EAPA members that are not on the listserv. He reminded everyone that the listserv is the only means of communication. The listserv may be used to post questions for response from other members.
Diversity – Marilyn Raines
In Marilyn's absence, it was reported that the December 2003 conference will have the same two speakers that were scheduled for last December but cancelled due to ice and snowstorms.
Certification – Jim Cooper
Jim reminded all attendees that there are different forms for different disciplines and please be careful to get the correct ones. He also reminded everyone that CEAP renewal is on a different cycle than membership renewal. EACC may not send notice of renewals for CEAP so be very careful to watch when your CEAP renewal is coming up.
Standards and Ethics – Cliff Morgan
In Cliff's absence, he sent a report that we have had one ethics complaint which was turned over to the EACC for investigation. The LEAP Board will most likely get involved since the individual in question is also a LEAP.
Scholarship – Karen Molli
In Karen's absence, it was reported that we awarded one scholarship for the August Conference.
Awards – Andy Silberman
The Box of Generosity is ready and the name to be drawn will receive free registrations for the next four Chapter trainings. This will not include the March Conference. The winner was Stan Bolton. A second name was drawn in case Stan does not accept the award and that name was Joanna Lipscomb.
March Conference – Karen Molli
In Karen's absence, it was reported that the March Conference in 2004 will be held at the Hyatt Hotel in Charlotte at Southpark. Information on the March Conference has been put on EAPA's website.
