1. Rob Bistodeau met with the Program subcommittee in order to include a site on the Web for award suggestions..
2. The student intern paperwork has gone to Rod McInnis; Nancy Lo would like to have travel funds to go to the Region and meet with the interns potential supervisor. Lo would also like a committee of four panel members appointed to select the best intern.
3. The outreach program needs more materials. Debbie Losey contacted Roy Allen and he has only a very small amount of outreach materials. If we want to put scientific posters on the web, we would need to contact the poster authors.
