Update from Erika:

  • The EGG website is updated with the previous edits suggested by Connie.
  • Erika will look into how to edit the Calendar that was added to the Events page so I can edit it and add events as they are announced.
  • Last month’s meeting notes will be updated soon. I just need to find the notebook in which I recorded the notes in. 
  • Please take notes for me on this document for the rest of the meeting because I need to leave for a doctors appointment. Thank you!

Updates from Kay (Barbara)--

  • Phoebe had meeting with Dean and looked over director search position documents. Proper documents were sent to HR and it is in the process of being approved but it has not been posted yet.

  • The new Director Search committee is active and working towards identifying qualified candidates.

Updates from committees

  • Research Symposium: not really anything new, will start sending out emails for Keynote Speakers and recruiting volunteers for the RSPC committee.
  • Food and venue: tbd; debating between Beggars and Green Dot Stables (green dot is more $6  per person; pros are that the space is bigger,  and there is free parking)
