The Committee discussed future tours. The following areas were agreed.

Ray Bucko and Mark Panning will work on updating the Committee goals. The set of the goals from 2007 were reviewed as part of the agenda. Although a lot of the objectives were met, there remains work to be done from 2007 and new objectives may be added. The Committee also speculated on new objectives related to the new ADAAA and hidden disabilities.

Lennis Pederson commented that a sub committee working on awareness events would soon be meeting.

For all to review, the agenda listed the survey themes as prepared by Amy Matthews. The survey results will be useful when creating new goals and objectives.

The meeting adjourned at 3:42 pm.

The next meeting will be on September 28, 2011 in the Swanson Hall conf. room at 3:00 pm.
