    - Talk to Bill Ghezzi (Karen) since he does some of this for us anyway

    - Should we expand the committee?
    - Work on coordinating with other committees>
    - Goodie: not too interested in this approach, would rather just ask people to help when needed

    - Voted on by committee: Passed
  • Review Budget:
    - Wait until Barb Bushor comes back from leave since she is really familiar with the budget

    - Think about when actual events are planned to think of ways to make them more accessible to as many as possible (covering desks, etc.)
  • Webpage Working Group:
    - Kathleen Kidd is stepping away
    - Security part was an issue, might present an obstacle to users
