resources
           i. If this testing proves to benefit Exam works, at least 24 nurses will become
premier members and will automatically be signed up for conference annually.

              2. An additional $15k in conference registration revenue
      c. Before the preferred three nurses test our resources, we will employ one (1) initial user
to test the current system
           i. This should be completed by 5/30/18
      d. Will prefer to use a current AANLCP currently employed at ExamWorks
           i. If there is none, Lori will pick one of the three preferred nurses to perform this
task
      e. The three preferred nurses need FREE premier membership access for one month (30
days)
      f. ODG will not be used as Exam Works has its own subscription/relationship with ODG
      g. Official testing by all three nurses should begin on 6/1/18
8. Journal Committee – Erin will review, pending
