2005 Elections 
Discussion was held regarding 2005 elections for district representatives and officers. The By-Laws for elections of officers states there is a maximum two year term and it was suggested that this be adhered to. A suggestion was made that nominations for officers should be submitted to the Election committee prior to the SAC meeting. Ballots will then be cast at the meeting. 
It was suggested that some of the Vice Chairman's committee responsibilities be distributed to other Council members to alleviate the current workload.
