  • County strategic plans are moving forward across the state.
  • The format we used this year for our Legislative Watch may need to be improved upon in the future, although it was still useful this year.

Old Business:

  • A motion was made by Dudley and seconded by Mary to go forward in planning the June 9th Event at Kearney Hall and approving up to $300 to assist in this effort. Motion carried.
  • Greg will set up a committee lunch meeting to finish assigning responsibilities to our Johnson County Strategic Plan. The completed plan will be shared at the April 13 convention. Additional committee members are needed and those interested should contact Greg.
  • County platform will be worked on by Kim McCoy and Greg Haas and will be shared at the April 13 Convention.
  • The Twing Room at the JC Library has been reserved for our April 13 Convention. Plans for food, displays, and the meeting schedule will be finalized at our April 2nd meeting.
  • The Scholarship Committee met on Feb. 20th. Plans are being made for another film night, probably in early November of 2024 as a fundraiser. An ad about the scholarship will soon be placed in the Buffalo Bulletin and Vikki will be asked to follow up again with school counselors about the scholarship application. Dixie McIntyre will be notified of applicants and information about the scholarships will be shared on a table at the April Convention.

New Business:

  • Lunch Forums were discussed, and Greg will contact Kim to confirm a future date for the next one.
