Treasurer’s report: Per Lynette, the current checking balance is $155.00. Accepted.

New Business:
1. Increase participation at meetings: plan to use conference calling at $30.00 per call using TBGconferencing.com for meetings to increase attendance at chapter meetings.
2. There is a need to set standards for anger management programs/services and providers in Midwest region. Glen discovered that Psychology Today therapists/providers do not have anger management credentials.

Need: Many people needing anger management services or who are court-ordered take an online course or a 3 hour course. It was determined that this is not sufficient.
Plan: to write up a recommended program outline with standards for provider credentials to be approved by MCNAMA members and by NAMA. Requirements: Minimum standard programs should provide at least ten hours of anger management sessions and providers should be trained by NAMA approved programs and hold the NAMA credentials of Certified Anger Management Specialist-I or II.
3. It was decided to postpone elections.
4. Next meeting: June 29, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.
1200 Harger Rd., Suite 602, Oak Brook, IL. Lynette’s number is 708.341.5438.

MCNAMA April, 2015 Meeting

MIDWEST CHAPTER
NATIONAL ANGER MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION

MINUTES OF BOARD MEETING
April 13, 2015

MEMBERS PRESENT: Dr. Celeste McGill, Leanne Mackovitch, Terry Rosenborough, John Fei, Glen Cannon.

Meeting Called to Order 7:15 p.m.

Location: 3522 W. 111th Street Chicago, Illinois

Minutes from the August Meeting were approved

Treasurer’s report: Per Glen in Lynette Hoy’s absence. The current checking balance is still $690.25. This does not take into account two new memberships and expenses from the NAMA conference. Those will be presented in the May meeting.

Old Business:

1.Glen presented another update on the board certification with IAODAPCA. As indicated in the March MCNAMA meeting, IAODAPCA’s Executive Director Jessica Hayes indicated that the Executive Committee of IAODAPCA has decided not to pursue the Anger Management Certification. She indicated that the recommendation to not pursue went to a full board vote in September and that a formal letter will go out by the end of that month. As of this date, no notification formal or otherwise has been received. Again, this decision is somewhat disappointing but given the poor progress of IAODAPCA on this matter that originally brought together experts from around the country only to be left hanging, it may have been for the best.
2. A discussion took place around recruiting new members and organizations to MCNAMA. John made suggestions about contacting programs on the Anger management website, Dr. McGill mentioned contacting the IDPR about our organization and possible certification/licensing of programs and Leanne Mackovitch talked about Juvenile anger management and the lack of credentials. Reports and discussions to continue at the next meeting.
3. NAMA recognized MCNAMA’s help in producing the NAMA annual conference in 2015. A special thanks goes to Terry and Alex Rosenborough and Mike Herz again for their help.

NEW BUSINESS
1. Next meeting will be the election of officers for the 2015 – 2016 year. A motion will be made by Glen Cannon to forgo the drawing up a slate to be voted on at the next meeting and to go instead to a direct vote.

2. The next meeting will be May 18, 2015 at 7:00 pm at 3511 W. 111th Street Chicago, Illinois (111th and Drake)

Meeting adjourned 8:10 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Glen Cannon
