  4. Open Forum
    When does WECM make changes and how is it communicated? They have a session every summer. Where and how are we notified of changes? Dean Childress will talk to Dr. Kemper-Pelle to find out if there is a contact person or do we need to initiate communication with them.
    Do course titles need to match for ACGM? If it is core, yes. Idea discussed for division chairs to audit courses to make sure in compliance.
