Board Minutes: The draft of the March 14, 2005 were not distributed to the Board prior to the teleconference so Judge Hogan moved them to the May meeting so Board members could review them. A change to the request of Steven Lust who had asked for Inactive Status instead of Voluntary Cancellation was discussed and changed by a motion, motion carried. Robin Balsam abstained. Mr. Lust was granted Inactive Status.
Chair Report. Judge Hogan shared the fact that Joy Isham sent a letter asking she be removed from the Board for persistent medical problems. Judge Hogan drafted a letter to Chief Justice Alexander to begin the search for a replacement from the Kitsap ARC community.
