Minutes

1. Introductions & Technology, Welcome New Members

 

Discussed the panel process and management change.  This was done to ensure consistency and help across the panels.  It is important to have Board representation at all the panels.  In person meetings for major panels this season to allow members to meet and see each other.  Was difficult with budget impasse and lack of in-person meetings often seemed to impact approval ratios.  Approval ratios are one indicator of panel functionality and can be an expression of panel over reach.

 

2. Training, Orientation & iTransfer.org Updates

 

3. Course Review

 

Discussed the possible decisions the panel could make on courses. – Approved, Conditionally Approved (co-chairs make final approval), Needs More Information, and Returned.  When and why to use them was explained.
