  1.  Discuss changing the name of this group to IAI Advisory Committee
    1. Conclusion:  This group is advisory to the Steering Panel
    2. Pending approval by Steering Panel, will change the name


  1. iManage Check-In
    1. Krista demonstrated functionality in the Administrative side of iManage
    2. Decision Matrix – sometimes panels ask for things, then aren’t happy when they get them.  Panels feel it makes them “pickier” when voting.
      1. Matrix can now be hidden in the decision process, but shows in the voting process. 
      2. It can also be hidden for both, or removed, depending on the panel choice.
      3. The information is still available on the website, just a bit harder to find.


  1. Website re-design (http://dev.itransfer.org) demonstrated by Krista
    1. Would like to have an A-Z type search
    2. Is a Clickable Glossary possible, or hover mouse over “terminology” for a brief description
    3. Search – new people don’t necessarily know what to search for
    4. Complaint button needs to be on every page.  Maybe on static banner at the top?


  1. Policies and Procedures Manual
    1. Steering Panel will be asked to refresh the charge to the panels.  The amount of information being required by panels has gotten out of hand.
    2. Wording from Kristine Young – Formal recommendation from IAC to Steering re Panel Orientation/Education (maybe put on co-chairs)
    3. Need a way to see if 1 panel does it, all must.  If majority of panels don’t like it, then what?
    4. Need to balance consistently fair decisions.  A rubric does not do this.
    5. Written charge to panel responsibilities needs to be specific in the Manual.  Not just the spirit.
    6. Retreat for co-chairs is suggested, including a frank discussion of issues, how/what to train panel members on.
    7. Need to have a bibliography at the end with full content of citations
    8. Need a sub-committee of Steering that meets every so many years


  1. Geometry requirement at the 2 year college – TJ isn’t here


  1. ICCB Items
    1. Will be re-convening ASAP Teacher Education Panel
      1. Separate path from AAT degree
      2. Jess – CLEAR outcome, please!


  1. IBHE Items
    1. Tier 3 of Major Directive due today
    2. Annual Report


  1. Transfer Coordinator’s Meeting Agenda Items
    1. Training for Panel Members
    2. Panel Concerns
    3. TJ – discuss pre-requisites in general


  1. Other
    1. Acknowledge double-dipping (Kristine Young) – Illinois Comm. College CAO wants 37 hour package acknowledged somehow – Credential Award?
    2. Next Meeting(s)
      1. IAC – April 10, 2012
      2. TC’s – April 17, 2012
