ii. Panels are not creating something to match AP. Just seeing if any course matches AP exam.

iii. Old way doesn’t work anymore. We have to be efficient and effective.
iv. Duplication in membership. Tone of meetings is different. IAC is honest, open discussion. Steering is mostly reports and updates, policy driven.
v. Steering is “court of appeals” on course returns, which has happened once.
vi. Each will migrate to in-person meeting once a year. E.g. Steering in the Spring, IAC in the Fall with a conference call in the other season, at least for one year and we’ll see how that goes.
vii. IAC will meet this Fall, will try a conference call in the Spring.
