Introductions & Technology
Fine tuning background programming on the website
Multiple Panel assignments causes an issue
We have implemented Doodle for RSVP to save money on catering at meetings
There is now a short delay in emails going out on course decisions to give the panel time in the meeting to change their minds on decisions for consistency
Many meetings this season have changed to Conference Calls in an effort to save money
iTransfer/IAI now report to Danielle Lindsay who came to us from ISU’s Provosts Office

Items From Members
Tom McGinnis – Discussion re AS, AES, AA degrees
Anne Brennan – There needs to be a consistent set of courses across all City Colleges of Chicago schools OR ease up on calling Ongoing Review courses. Which would be a better use of time? It will take more than a couple of review seasons to get all the the courses through the process
Ashley – GECC Humanities & Fine Arts – nothing in our Policies & Procedures Manual says the requirement for 3 HFA Courses have to be 3 different codes. Therefore, this needs to be in policies to be enforced.
Jess Ray – How are schools doing CEU’s? (Continuing Education Units)
