  1.  Introductions and make sure technology is working.


  1.  IAI Information
    1. Walk-through of Website
      1. What would you like to see if a new member in order to prepare for meetings?
        1. It was hard for Stan to figure out how to look at what he has access to
        2. Suggestion:  put a link in any email to panel to specifically their “stuff” with a 2nd link to Orientation
        3. The term “Align” instead of “Approve” or “Accept” courses would be good.  That’s what we do.
      2. We now have a YouTube channel where we can put these Orientation things
    2. No movement yet by the boards to bring the History Major codes back.
      1. What is the turn-around time on courses for the Social & Behavioral Sciences panel?
        1. Krista is now that Panel Manager – hopefully things will be smoother
    3. Shall we continue to meet as a panel?
      1. All agreed YES it is important.
      2. Annually is good


  1.  Statewide Transfer Updates
    1. ICCB and IBHE together are trying to get Common Core going for GECC Comm. Writing I and Writing II with Speech Course.  All information on these websites:
      3. PARCC is the reason this is happening.
        1. Illinois is one of 13 states doing this
        2. Once English Writing and Speech are aligned, they will move on to the Sciences.
    2. Legislation Update
      1. Seems to be on hold which means things are going well with IAI, legislators are seeing this.
      2. The only thing going forward is Women Working legislation planning.


  1.  Next meeting will be held Friday, September 27, 2013 at either ISU Alumni Center or Heartland Comm. College.  The 2014 meeting will be Sept 26, 2014
