      • It was agreed that meeting dates would remain the same for upcoming year but time would change to 2:30 to accommodate those teaching classes. 60-90 minutes will be our goal for meeting duration. Location will remain the same.
      • One other issue not on agenda – Speech Communication secretary has resigned so there is no official CAAC secretary. Jodi Rodriguez will serve as interim secretary if CAAC is amenable. Because it is an interim issue, it does not require a vote or bylaw change. No objections were raised.
      • Discussion about possibility of summary report for maintenance requests. Will plan on meeting with Troy, Joe Ganakos, Paul Lucke, Dalia and Jodi to discuss changes/requests.
  4. Open Forum
    • Andy Miller asked about who makes changes in system that were approved. Those changes will be taken care of at CAAC level.
    • Paul Allen raised issued about Curriculum Maintenance Request entry training. It was suggested that chairs and secretaries are the smartest choice for training to provide two points of contact for each division. Will check with Troy. Poor attendance when training was held during Professional Development week previously. It was also suggested that CAAC delegates attend training as well.
    • Debate team will be moving to Debate Suite – JBH 107 and 108. Actively seeking debate recruits.
    • Meeting adjourned for Summer 2:45
