-  ASEC does not support the wholesale adoption of a competencies based approach to recruiting and performance management.

(Moved by Heather Daniels, seconded by Daña Alder. Approved unanimously.)

-  ASEC does not support the definition of organization-wide competencies because they would be too broad at that scale to be useful. (Moved by Jim Maynard, seconded by Heather Daniels. Approved with one abstention.)

·         The September 10, 2012 Assembly Agenda was revised.

·         Next ASEC Meeting, September 6, 2012– for decision.
