Meeting Minutes: Convocation Planning Committee
3/19/2007 ◦ 1:00 PM ◦ Library West Training Room 419


Christine Driver; Jason Fleming; Sara Russell Gonzalez; Dan Reboussin; Jay Wiese; Adrian Zeck; Brian Keith (ex officio)


New date

Due to proximity of the current date for Convocation (May 9) to the date for the Spring Picnic (April 13), the Employee Recognition Committee suggested moving the date of Convocation closer to the end of summer.

The committee agreed that the intersession between the Summer C and Fall 2007 semesters would be the best time for a Summer Convocation, and chose August 15th as the tentative date. Committee members will check their calendars for conflicts before an announcement about the new date is sent to all staff.



Committee members proposed a Jeopardy-based format for the trivia game, with Departmental teams headed by the Assistant Directors or their deputies, and with John Ingram as emcee.

Jason and Jay will meet with John Ingram to introduce the idea to the Directors.
