1. President Elect Position Vacancy – Miki Finnin
a. Miki discussed the Board position vacancy with our ASHP affiliate liaison, Aileen, on August 13th.  Aileen said that she did not see specific guidelines/rules in the organizations bylaws to specifically address this issue and felt that the Board should then follow the second part of the bylaws, which says to appoint someone within our membership to the Board position.  Aileen also noted that most affiliates, in the same position, have pulled a person from their current Board, not their membership to fill the position.  This ensured that orientation to the Board was at a minimum.   After discussion with all Board members, Kari McCracken expressed some interest in moving from the Secretary position to the President-elect position.   
i. A motion was made to appoint Kari McCracken to the position of President-Elect on the current Board.  The Board approved the motion.
b. The Secretary position will be filled from the membership. 

2. OSHP Representation at the Oklahoma State Board of Pharmacy Building Reception and Dedication. 
a. Tracy Hagemann graciously agreed to represent the organization at the building dedication and reception.
