Local Secretary’s report

  1. Angela reported on testing. The September test date has not yet been set, as the Rochelle Park Library’s new director is coordinating with another group about the Saturday afternoon slot. There may be a change from once a month to quarterly testing if necessary. Angela will keep the committee informed on progress. Proctor-in-training Franck Mounier is reaching the final phase of training.

  2. Membership Chair was not present; Bob will reach out to her for status update.

  3. Bob shared an email he received from the Gifted Youth Coordinator, who is stepping back at this time due to personal obligations.

Treasurer’s report
