The minutes of the February
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE: Dr. Dorman Stout, Chair
Dr. Stout distributed a list of Prescription Medications provided by ETSURA Board Members and the prices provided by Mooney Pharmacy. He stated that Mooney Pharmacy would need a list of those who planned to participate on the drug discount program and that each participant would need a valid ETSU I.D. card. He also stated the June newsletter would carry a more detailed description of the proposed drug program.
Dr. Stout discussed the possibility of establishing a Service Committee as one of the board's standing committees. He envisioned the committee as being responsible for developing a list of services to be provided, recruit and assign individuals to certain tasks, and to coordinate the arrangements. The board was whole-heartily in agreement.
Dr. Stout asked the question as to whether the board felt it necessary for the executive committee to meet on a monthly basis. After some discussion a motion was made by Jay Allen and seconded by Betty Tester to continue with monthly meetings. Motion passed.
Dr. Stout reported that he was preparing for a taped interview with Fred Sauceman and wanted input from the board as to the points he should emphasize. Some of the things mentioned as being important were annual and/or life membership, fellowship, free parking, I.D. Cards and other perks offered all retirees by the university.
The president presented for approval a Proclamation prepared for Diana D. McClay, who was noticeably absent from the board meeting, which was both humorous and serious. The approval was unanimous.
It was also noted that a poor response was received from the Activity Survey sheet that was included in the March Newsletter.

Dr. Fisher pointed out that most members of the Wellness Committee have been appointed; however, if the retirees wanted to be represented on the committee they should send a nominee to Dr. Wayne Andrews. It was suggested that a retired faculty from the College of Health would be ideal.
