Drema reviewed several important pending regulatory issues that were discussed at the Michigan GAC.  She said that the MCUL Action Fund was the 24th highest PAC in fund raising.  Drema mentioned that the MCUL is still looking for participants for next week’s Hike the Hill in Washington D.C.  There are scholarships available if needed.  We also discussed the need to schedule another Legislative Breakfast.  

CU DIFFERENCE CAMPAIGN:
Heather reviewed her report with the Committee.  The creative is complete.  Heather reported that CUCorp increased their funding to be used toward the creative and the quality is much improved.  The campaign is set to begin on June 7th.  Heather also reviewed the opportunity that we will have with WDIV’s Click on Detroit website for members to tell their Credit Union story and get votes for the best story.

MCUL REPRESENTATIVE:
Ron Martin provided a written report to the Committee highlighting the upcoming league sponsored events.  Ron also distributed an organizational chart for the MCUL.  

MCUL DIRECTOR:
The MCUL Board held a special meeting in May and voted to endorse Peter Hoekstra for Governor.  The Board also had its reorganizational meeting with new officers being elected. The new Chairman is George Isola, Howard Spencer is the Vice Chair and Tony Canarvon is the Treasurer/Secretary.

CHARITY COMMITTEE:
The written Charity Committee Report was reviewed. Crystal received word from the March of Dimes on the total funds raised by the chapter and the amount is significantly different than our records.  Crystal will follow up with our rep to verify.  We discussed the next event, Relay for Life.  Volunteers are still needed to help count money.

CHAIRMAN’S REPORT:
Drema reported that she has spoken with Carolyn from ABD Credit Union and Martin from Sterling Van Dyke Credit Union.  They are both interested in becoming involved with the chapter.  They will hopefully be attending upcoming meetings.

OLD BUSINESS:
We still need to finalize the minutes from the Annual Meeting.  Drema will send these to Fran for a count and Credit Unions in attendance update.  

NEW BUSINESS:
Jan asked if we would be willing to consider doing conference call meetings every other month.  After discussion we decided that we would continue with our in person meetings, but allow people to call in if the facility allows.
