Minutes from the last meeting are on the G drive, but were not distributed at this meeting.

After discussing registration numbers, particularly for the Fish! Workshops, there was a brief discussion on mechanisms for allowing participants to let others know how effective the sessions were, the equivalent of “reviews.”  Other than posting to the listserv, the only suggestion was a blog on the HR site, which several people doubted would be an effective means of communicating with the library at large.

Amy Weber has asked if we would consider co-sponsoring a time management workshop with Lincoln Trail.  They are more interested in full day workshops, but would be willing to work with us.  The consensus was that we are not opposed to the idea, but we’re not sure that this is the speaker we want.  Other ideas for speakers on the same topic are T4B and Cooperative Extension.  Another suggestion was someone from State Farm who talked at the Looking Forward South conference on planning your work.

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 1, 2005 from 1 to 2:30 pm
