-**Midlands ​Question:** Since CMLS will freeze/shut down on October 1, is it safe to assume that we will no longer be receiving any CMLS paper reports to update after October 1?  And at that time, how long can we expect it to take for new patrons’ records to update with their CMLS ID so we can then approve their records in BARD?  That turnaround now sometimes takes up to two weeks.\\+**Midlands:​** Since CMLS will freeze/shut down on October 1, is it safe to assume that we will no longer be receiving any CMLS paper reports to update after October 1?  And at that time, how long can we expect it to take for new patrons’ records to update with their CMLS ID so we can then approve their records in BARD?  That turnaround now sometimes takes up to two weeks.\\

-**South Update:** Talked a bit about the workings and recommendations from the National Audio Equipment Advisory Committee, which is developing a new focus on more of the technology of the service. The NAEAC will become the Reading Technology Advisory Group. The proposal adds another library person on the committee, quarterly meetings by telephone, and a consumer/​patron from each region. Ideally would like to have it be a YA involved. This is NOT approved yet. Has to be approved by all member groups. Three different groups have to work together, cross team approach. Some key recommendations from the libraries group at the September 2014 meeting were a refreshable braille display should be pursued, continue work on next generation digital talking book player, and improved, more simplified, inventory of players.+**Southern:** Talked a bit about the workings and recommendations from the National Audio Equipment Advisory Committee, which is developing a new focus on more of the technology of the service.
