1.     Introductions and make sure technology is working.
2.    IAI Major directive responses: 
a.    Review of Round 1 responses
b.    Krista will send comments via email from “no” responses, and work over summer to get those to “yes” responses.
c.    Some courses at upper level at institutions we won’t be able to fix to transfer credits as course is major not elective from “no” response schools
3.    Legislation update – SB 00059
a.    Web site complaint area is a good way to collect problem information about transfers.
b.    Can the panel get a summary of related questions/complaints? Contact Krista
c.    Legislations could change how transfer works within Illinois.
d.    Senator Silverstein used legislation from California that had no program like IAI. He basically replaced California with Illinois in the bill.
e.    SB 00059 basically says that if a student has his/her Associates degree, they are given some measure of security when transferring to a 4 year school, at the Jr. level.
f.     Unintended consequences:
                                          i.    Major may not be open
                                         ii.    Better to transfer before Associate level reached
4.     Other items:
a.    Tishley Herrington election to fill completed term of Joan McEneany
