  1. Door Prizes – Darron Pearlmutter.  We will contact Darron to get him onboard.
  2. Each committee will report at each meeting.
  1. Determine fundraisers – Welding class at Adams 12 will not be held this year as Adams is building a new facility and will be moving in at the end of the school year.  Suggestions were made to find another facility.  Joel will check with Kilroy’s Workshop and report at the next meeting.  It was suggested to host an electrical class, basics to advanced.  Rob would be willing to teach a small class (5-8).
  2. ASE test writing. This committee needs to remain a strong force on the ASE re-write committees.


Discussion - Tech Contest returning to one day.  It will eliminate attendees booking an extra night and trying to fill Monday with classes for the contest.  Late registrations will be accepted!




Discussion on Tech Committee having a representative on the E-Board - Greg Sabell attended the last meeting and will continue attending.


An agenda template will be established to ease meeting planning.  It was also discussed on whether or not to use Google Docs.  Most districts in the committee do not use it.


Brian said that the Pikes Peak Region will be hosting a road-e-o and tech contest sometime in the spring.  Date and location to be announced.




Rick Hill, Aftermarket Sales, and Richard Jeanblanc, Branch Manager from Rush Truck Centers in Colorado Springs provided our vendor presentation and lunch.  Rick handed out Rush’s line cards and talked about the school bus-related parts they stock.  They also provide a Mobile service.  Shop repairs are a maximum of 2 hours the vehicle will be diagnosed and the customer will be notified of repairs and cost.  Rush is not CDE certified, yet!




Ronnalle reported if anyone from our committee is going to America’s Best in December, contact CSPTA for assistance in travel expenses.  Two members from this committee are eligible to apply for the Jim Dale fund.  You must cover your expenses and the Jim Dale Fund will reimburse.
