Members in attendance agreed that 9:30 A.M. on the last Thursday of each month was a good time for the Committee to meet. It was understood that changing to Friday would be problematic. Lennis will poll those not able to attend to learn about better times. The topic will be discussed again at the September 30, 2004 meeting.


John Baxter and Wade Pearson spoke about the conversation with Chuck Lenosky regarding classroom accommodation.


Consideration was given to participation at the Annual Benefit Fair scheduled for October 13, and 14th. The Committee was supportive of the idea. Members volunteered to be at the table each day. John Baxter and Bill Hill will find handouts/trinkets to give away at the event. Rich Rossi was asked to work with Fran Angeroth to re-create the table and display board that the ADA Committee has in its inventory.


Mark Panning lead a discussion of the draft copy of the Committee's Goals and Objectives. The draft had been circulated to each member in advance of the meeting. For the September meeting, the final copy of the Goals and Objectives will be reviewed and assignment of responsibility and time lines will be established.


The meeting adjourned at 10:40 P.M.


The next meeting will be at 9:30 A.M. on Thursday, September 30, 2004 in the Swanson Hall Technology Conference Room.
