financially on both sides. The MAC, from what I
understand, is more of a membership association, and it
even says in its bylaws that it's not a regulatory
agency, and I think that's a conflict there. The state
board, they might be overwhelmed and maybe they need help
in doing it, but they're the ones who can give a fair
maybe assessment of the continuing ed, and I never
understood why this came to where it is.
Not everyone in the State here is a
member of the MAC, so now, arbitrarily now they have to
become a member or they have to abide by their rules, and
there's no regulation, they're just being handed over
this priority of regulating the continuing ed program.
And everything else has been said.
I've been to many seminars, the MAC puts
on great seminars, Macomb puts on, I've been to Omni,
I've been to Fetterman, I've been all over, and they're
all really good, and I just think right now, I just think
it would be a conflict of interest, and that's my input.
Everything else has been said. So that's it, and I thank
you for the opportunity.
MR. MacINTOSH: Thank you for your

you hear me? You're on mute.
