2. TOPIC:

Question was raised as to whether Jim was able to attend General Advisory Committee
meeting?
3. TOPIC:

Ken reported on electives fairs. Current status for enrollment for 2015-16 is 20 students which
is just enough to run the program. More students are expected to enroll. Electives Fairs may
not be the best, and certainly not sufficient, means for enrollment. In some schools students
must pre select which programs they are interested in before they have any good information
about the program. Other schools have students attend in mass one location where all the
programs are located. The programs must then work to communicate with students. It
requires that the Carp program representative troll the audience in a similar fashion to the
circus barker. We are also considering attending the career fairs which run during lunch
period, 4th period. Finally we have also spoken to Barb Brister about setting up a display in
MTHS. Our best marketing is through current students but we only have eleven and are trying
to expand the program. We would like to enroll enough students for two classes, 40 students.
Ken is also suggesting looking at ways to contact parents with information about the program.
We know that the current status for construction industry employment is very good.
4. TOPIC:

Carson suggested using a more traditional approach for marketing: posting photos of students
working on the project. He also brought a newspaper article ‘Apprenticeship accepting
applications’ that was focused on IAM/Boeing Joint Apprenticeship Committee. He pointed
out that many skills for both construction and aerospace industries are the same.
5. TOPIC:
Ralph brought up the topic of landscaping. His concern was to work on the landscaping plan early in
the schedule so that we might be able to take advantage of nurseries growing appropriate plants,
thereby allowing the landscape work to use more mature, larger plants, for less money. That in turn
would produce a better looking landscape and hopefully help in selling the house. He wondered
whether or not the Lynnwood HS green house was still up and running? He also mentioned the
possibility of contacting either or both of the Alderwood Garden Club and the Millcreek Garden Club.
He also mentioned two people, Pauline Goebel (water system?) and Carry Barry (Angie’s List or
Contractor’s Hotline?). We need to figure out their connection to the landscaping process.

6. TOPIC:
Current House Project Update: the current house is close to completing framing for the first floor.
Ideally the students would complete the framing for the second floor and roof before school lets out the
third week of June.
One possible suggestion from the Construction Manager, Bob, is to extend the house construction
schedule from one year to two years. That would mean that this summer the various mechanical
contractors, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, would do their rough in work, perhaps the insulation and
even drywall. Then next years students would start with the finish work for the house: trim, cabinets,
etc., completing the house by the end of the year. This proposal is currently being review by the Rotary
House Committee.

LOCATION:

Randy spoke about upcoming field trip HOT (Hands On Tour) to the local apprenticeship
programs.

As a post meeting follow up (this tour happened on April 23): all students but one attended. We
first went to the Electricians Program in Mt Vernon. There we attended presentations from the
AJAC (Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee) who had a demonstration about how to test
carbon fibers, then the Western Washington Sheet Metal JATC who had students complete a
metal tool box. Next the Northwest Laborers-Employers Training Program where students used a
gas fired nail gun and optical leveling instrument. Then to the Northwest Washington Electrical
Industry Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee where they bent conduit, and finally the
Snohomish PUD had representatives speaking about the Meter, or Wire or Line Apprenticeship
Training opportunities.

We then traveled up to Burlington and visited the Marine Pipefitters, Plumbing, Operating
Engineers, and Sprinkler Fitters apprenticeship programs all provided an activity and introduction
to their programs. Very informative and worthwhile for all who attended.
