New Business:  Chris Callahan mentioned that we will do a bylaw change at the annual meeting to change the meetings to the second Tuesday of every month.  The bylaw committee will consist of officers, president and an at large person.  Larry Riggins agreed to be the at large person.  Chris will get with the officers at a later date to schedule a meeting to go over the bylaws.  Butch Tumlin and his wife were involved in a car wreck and it was suggested to send a card.  No news from any of the Boards present.  Tana stated that Bea had done the Chapter Updates with ICC.  Chris spoke of the meeting that was held at the Oxford Civic Center and how disappointed everyone was with the comments being made from the speakers.  The Energy Code was requesting that Arc-Fault breakers be taken out of the code and the Fire Service is dead set against that.  The cost is not prohibitive by having arc-fault breakers in the house.  There is typically a $500.00 increase in a 2100 sq ft home.  Chris also discussed foundation depth and anchor bolts.  He has requested that all jurisdictions are on the same page and doing inspections the same way.  Chris has suggested that we have other members in to discuss areas that they are proficient in.  He recommends using the free e-codes online for those inspectors who have smart phone or I Pads they can utilize in the field.  Adam Thrasher states he uses the program.
