      The meeting of NORPAC’s Executive Committee took place at Elmers Restaurant in Tacoma WA. The meeting began at 9:00 with Jerry Galland, Tracey Galland, Dennis Simpson, Trever Waltos, Gene Sanders and Dennis Gorley in attendance. Dale Scott and Ron Kearns were absent.

      The meeting was held primarily to work on the Great Wolf Lodge Conference planning.

      A motion was made (Gorley, Waltos) that the registration fee for the 2015 conference be waived for executive board members in lieu of the efforts and work to plan, organize and carry out the conference. Motion passed unanimously.

      It was agreed the Norpac Santas would cover the room fee ($50.00) at the Lakewood Ram following Santa Gordon Bailey’s school on July 24 and 25, 2015.

      The 2014 Conference Program was used as a guide for planning and assignments were made for contacting individuals and programs. It was agreed that one of the round tables need to focus on the role for Mrs Claus. One presentation will be on Healthy Santas if the appropriate speakers can be obtained. Another program may be a speaker from Arthur and Associates. Karaoke will occur provided Ramsey Cowlishaw is available. We will repeat the Story Telling contest and Tracey Galland said she was putting together a basket that can be use as a prize. For the main Entertainment Trever Waltos will consult with a comedian he is aware of to determine details.

      The Santa Bag display will be expanded to include chairs from as many Santas as possible as well as a display of the variety of Santa boots. Sound system, microphones, clothes racks and mirrors will again be available. There will be no Flash mob this year due to time restraints and difficulty in finding a location.The cold cuts option for the luncheon will once again be chosen.

      There was a reminder that we need to specifically review several Great Wolf Lodge contract restrictions with participants to avoid any misunderstandings.

      For the following year there was a suggestion to focus on a professional photographer and maybe invite Merry Makers to present.

      Meeting adjourned at 11:00 am.

      Respectfully submitted,
      Tracey Galland
      Substituting for Dale Scott, Secretary
