  5. Recommendations for Continued Planning Process (see draft attached)
    The Committee decided that material submitted by Asquith and Johnson should be merged into the report draft as presented.
  6. SPC Draft Recommendations
    The committee agreed that the report given to President Grube would be titled "Initial Planning Report" because the committee felt that given the short timelines they were under, all areas were not fully discussed.

    Committees members discussed the need to have additional meetings to get draft in final form. It was agreed that a meeting would be scheduled for January 7th where cross-sectional groups would be formed for discussions. (Members of three sub-groups would comprise these cross-sectional groups.) The committee also requested that information be given to them by January 2nd so that it could be reviewed prior to the January 7th meeting.
    On January 8th group leaders from cross-sectional groups would meet with L. Robinson all day working to finalize the Initial Planning Report.

    On January 10th, the entire committee would meet for discussing the "final draft" of the Initial Planning Report before it is given to President Grube.
  7. Other Loose Ends
  8. The next regularly scheduled meeting is Tuesday, January 7, 1997 at 7:45 AM, North Voyageurs Room.
