Below is the minutes for our 7-10-06 meeting. Please review and let me know of any errors.

As discussed, we need to recruit two non-student members; the communication department faculty rep and a media professional. I've contacted Dr. Birgit Wassmuth, department chair, about the communication representative. If you know of anyone interested in the Media Professional position, please let me know

Your recommendations for  a student from ISA or AASA to fill the Student Member at large: ISA/AASA Appointment position, and the Media Professional position are encouraged.


As this was our last meeting, the chair position is now open. We will select the chair at our next meeting, the first of the 2006-2007 academic year.

Also forward me any topics you would like added to the agenda for our fist meeting of the new SMB for the 2006-07 academic year.

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.
