Discussion about the April 14, 2004 ADA Awareness Forum occurred with a review of the evaluations received from the attendees. It was agreed to begin planning for the next forum that could be in a year. Evaluations and notes form the forum were circulated at the meeting. Lennis Pederson encouraged the members to get their review comments and corrections to his notes form the forum back to him for editing and later dispersal.


Bill Hill is to verify that John Pierce has not taken the reasonable accommodation request form to the President's Council for approval.
