Paula informed EC about who had agreed to serve on each committee and which committees needed other suggestions.
EC decided to form a Revenue Generation Committee consisting of Betsy Kruger, convenor, Beth Sandore, Kirstin Dougan and Susan Edwards, to address the comments in the Stewarding Excellence Library report.
