2. Tour of the Campus Areas Which will be Involved in Upcoming Projects

3. Consider Broadcasting Future Meetings
When the Committee was informed that the average cost of televising a 2-hour meeting would be $60.00, questions were raised as to the importance of publicly airing these committee meetings. One suggestion was that if there is public interest, perhaps those interested would want to attend the meetings rather than watch on television. There was also discussion on what events would be significant to trigger the beginning of broadcasting.
There were also questions regarding flexibility of time (i.e., longer meetings), student availability during the summer for filming, and amount of advance notice required if the Committee decided to broadcast only some of the meetings, depending on agenda items.
Donna Ordahl will obtain further information regarding these questions for the next meeting, at which time this item will be returned to the agenda.
A future agenda item was suggested: “Financial Reporting.”
Mr. Copley adjourned the meeting, reminding Committee Members that the next meeting will take place on June 3, 2002, at 6:30 P.M.
