  1. Call to order by Michelle Brinegar at 3:10 p.m.
  2. By-Laws Discussion
    • Michelle Brinegar is now a District Court Judge and will look at the by-laws to determine if there is any conflict of interest with her being the Chair person of the LCIOG Board. There are no budget concerns at this time but if any members have reason to feel there is a bias or pressure please bring those concerns forward. The judicial member is a mandatory position for the IOG board and is a voting member. In the past our magistrates have chosen not to vote this was their choice not mandated by the IOG. The members present agreed that Michelle should continue as the chair. She would abstain from any votes where she felt there was a conflict of interest.
  3. A planning meeting to review and discuss outcomes will be planned for the future. The last two years of Phase II Core Services Outcomes will be reviewed to determine which outcomes moved up and/or down. CSU will complete a Phase III review of Core Services Outcomes by providers.
  4. Future agenda items for LCIOG:
