Books and Beverages; thanks to Elaine Jennerich who has volunteered do this program again.

A panel of librarians from departmental libraries that aren't part of the UW Libraries system, perhaps for the Spring quarter meeting
A brown bag for the temporary librarians (suggested by the LAPC)
President McCormick and Campus Conversations
There has been a lot of turnover in the campus Office of Government
Relations; this is the office that does lobbying for the campus.
Regardless of what we do in Olympia, we need to put some effort into educating this new crew.
We need to re-survey the membership; Anne will send out an e-mail asking
folks who haven't returned the survey to please send it in now. If
there is not strong enough support to continue present levels of legislative
activities, some options would be: don't have a lobbyist, retain the lobbyist
only in budget-writing years (no lobbyist in the off years); work through
the campus lobbyist; rely on the membership to lobby directly.
The SLIS Alumni Association will be contacting the Board to discuss Project Network, the Association's student mentoring program.
Rob will change the bank account so that funds can be transferred from the checking account to the savings account by phone.
If the membership decides to continue funding legislative activities,
we might set up a separate account for those funds.
