  1. 3.                 Approve minutes from March 16

Minutes were approved with changes.

 

  1. 4.                 Question Time

It was suggested that there be a different procedure for task force and NSM reports. EC should ask for a “comprehensive draft” instead of a final report, so it can be posted for comment, then discussed.  Chairs would be scheduled for an EC meeting at least a week after the report is turned in.  The task force or team would then be able to incorporate feedback into the final report, which would de due 30 days after the Chair meets with EC.  This process would make it clear that the committee isn’t finished with that first draft, and has a commitment to incorporate feedback.

 

  1. 5.                 Discuss topics for next AUL/EC meeting (4/9)
    1. a.     Research/Publications

This will be discussed at the next EC meeting.
