Dear Student Media Board members,

Below is the minutes for our 2-8-07 meeting. Please review and let me know of any errors.

I've attatched the Owl Radio documents (an updated member list will be forwarded soon). As the Presentation Technology Department has been very involved and instrumental with the student station, a member of PTD will attend the next meeting, Thursday, March 1 at 12:30 PM (location TBA). Please be prepared to discuss these documents and other startup procedures for Owl Radio at the March 1 meeting (Remember that these are drafts and may be used as a starting point for discussion. Please also consider templates and resources at  Collegiate Broadcasters Inc. (CBI) web page at www.collegebroadcasters.org/).

Thank you for your support of student media. If you wish additional information, please do not hesitate to call me at 770-499-3083 or email me.

Ed
