"Smokers Bill" seems to have public support to allow smoking in casinos and bars.
7:30 Secretary's Report - Michael Elrod reminded attendees of website updates (www.Dechiro.com) and new member access only section which will contain, pertinent info., research articles and more. Any member having access problems contact Elrod. Elrod announced dual idea of his and Trent Camp's plan to market DCS throughout the state utilizing billboards and possibly radio. The intention is to drive the public to the website, where they can "locate-a-doc" - major benefit of membership. Trent Camp also has some ideas regarding life insurance and how to make DCS a self-sustaining entity through a type of trust. He will introduce more info at a upcoming meeting. Elrod suggested sending a "care package" to the troops containing Bio-freeze, supplements, vitamins or other "chiropractic related" articles labeled with DCS logo, expressing our support - notify media outlets for "Public Relations". Elrod raised the issue some doctors want their "multiple office locations" listed on the website, brief discussion occurred and will be voted on at the next meeting.
