  2. Agenda Items requested by Stacey Lyle added to agenda: discussion of classes no longer being taught by surveyors and update on departmental endowment.  Stacey also suggested and will try to provide Faculty CVs for the new members by early next week.

  3. Hey Billy,

    Have you figured out if I will be able to attend via internet?

    • The meeting will be available via conference call, but not online.  I would like to be able to setup an online meeting using WEbEx or something, for in the future, but not for this meeting.  Bu,t Dee verified that the conference call has been done before, so it should work fine.

      • Billy,

        Do you have a number I need to call in?  I can attend the morning session but I will not be able to attend the afternoon session due to why I am up here and not there.
