3. ICIT Committee activities
    a. Education & Schools - Mark (chair) ISAC Fall School
        schedule will be similar to this year and we are always looking
        for suggestions - nothing definite for Fall School - open to
        joint sessions with other affiliates

    b. Legislative - issues/action needed from ICIT members -
        Jeff (chair) legislative session are through the first funnel, not that
        much to monitor this year, ISAC just put out another list of
        surviving bills, Jeff is looking for feedback on how much ICIT
        should be involved in legislative efforts; standing request from
        recorders for a method of calculating technology fees for
        recovering costs. Randy, concern over legislation that would be
        extremely difficult to implement. Also concern over the
        assessors being tied to the Iowa Manual rather then March
        Swift which would open up many options to automate offices.
        Jim - is there a technology team in the legislature? No.

    c. Membership, Nominating & Awards - Jim (chair) - Jim has
        written a letter that will be mailed to every county supervisor in

Report from Wayne Chizek - ICIT representative on the ISAC
       board of directors- ISAC received a grant for GIS technology
       manager, hope to have job description and someone in that
       position sometime in May.  President of ISAC this year is
       Angela Connolly, Polk County Supervisor.  Golf outing same
       date as our mid-year. FYI - on ISAC Spring and Fall
       Schools - wanted to expand topics to longer.  there has
       been a tendency for the numbers of attendees to be declining. 
       The new facilities increased vendor participation and therefor
       the profits from the conference.  County government will be
       changing and ISAC and ICIT must work to define the future
       of counties and coordinating government efforts. ICIT should
       take a role in helping define directions. Stearing committees -
       ISAC has 2 meetings, September 9th and October to develop
       legislative issues.  June - legislative workshops on how to deal
       with new legislation by district.  April 1st will be the chance to
       volunteer for one of the committees:
