        1. Tim Burns reported, recommendation was to review each ballot resolution in Main Committee.

          1. A procedural challenge was raised that Subcommittee resolution was sufficient to revise 1104 and that no further discussion was required. Some thought we needed to vote in Main Committee again.

          2. Main Committee was adjourned and all subcommittee chairs and past executive officers were requested to meet with the Chairman to discuss API 1104 bylaws. API staff was consulted and it was confirmed that subcommittee resolution was appropriate.

The meeting was called back to order by the Chairman.

          1. The findings were reported to the main committee. Additionally, it was explained that all subcommittee resolutions would be provided to the editorial group and incorporated into API 1104 21st Ed for ballot. The ballot would be inclusive of only revised areas, which are highlighted. Comments may be submitted for only the revised areas.

      1. Fracture Mechanics – Yong-Yi Wang and Doug Fairchild. Yong-Yi Wang reported, over 40 items to be reviewed and all items resolved and ready for ballot. (see Attachment G)

      1. General Interest Members Selection – Don Thorn. No activity.

      1. Maintenance Welding – Bill Bruce and Matt Boring. Bill Bruce reported, short meeting on 12 items. (see Attachment H)

      1. New Business

        1. The Chair asked if there was interest in extending the meeting length to spread out subcommittee meetings and reduce the amount of overlap, and hence conflicts of schedule for individuals wishing to participate in more than one subcommittee. General discussion resulted in a straw poll vote to extend the meeting into Friday on an as needed basis.

        2. The Chair asked for a straw poll vote to either accept the API 1104 – 21st Ed Editorial Group finding to not work each ballot resolution individually or to reconvene the subcommittees to allow additional questions by those unable to participate during ballot resolution.

          1. 35 votes for API 1104 – 21st Ed Editorial Group finding, edit the document and send for up or down vote

          2. 5 votes for send back to subcommittee for further comment

          3. 5 abstain

          4. Voting members were now asked to vote on API 1104 – 21st Ed Editorial Group finding, Moved by Chuck Woodruff and seconded by Dave Culbertson. 21 for, 0 oppose, 0 abstain

          5. Alan Beckett is requesting a volunteer for co-chair of the Repair Welding Task Group

          6. Alan Beckett wants us to consider establishing a task group to review the full document for continuity. Dave Culbertson suggested that perhaps the editorial committee could accept that responsibility.

          7. Ed Baniak reported on the schedule for the next edition of API Standard 1104.

          8. Next meeting will be located in New Orleans, LA Jan 23rd - 25th, 2013

      1. API Washington office information report – Ed Baniak
