a. Introductions and attendance Attendees introduced selves. Cathy Karamidas (Co-Chair) would be present, but she was representing our SIG at the First Attendees meeting.
a. thank you to Joanne for submitting joint presentation proposal—to be presented at 3:00 on Friday in Bickler
b. report from TED meeting (1) We have the “blessing” of TED to use “TeDeC” informally in our communications to distinguish us from the Early Career SIG; (2) TEDLines is due to Karen Voytecki by December 15.
a. link on TED website What would we like to see on the TED website? Ideas: meeting minutes, liaison report, membership. We need to talk with Karen Voytecki about this.
b. TEDLines Due Dec 15 (above)
c. Listserve/group: new Google group Patrice set up a new group: email@example.com. Open membership; all members can post. This will be a way to share information between TED and CEC as well as get out minutes and agendas before a meeting. We need to invite past attendees and interested students.
a. with input from Kim & Cathy (both planned to attend DEC in fall) [Need input here from others….my notes are a bit sketchy] Sarah Montana, Director for DEC
a. Terms of office: Officers shall be elected for one year, beginning on January 1. Each officer will serve for one year and can serve consecutive terms. Nov 2010 minutes document the decision that the first slate of officers would remain for 2 years during the building of the SIG. Do we want to stagger terms next year? We need to think about this and discuss in April for the fall 2012 elections at TED.
b. Ann Mickelson volunteered to be a Student Rep to build interest and membership among doc students. Motion made/seconded to add the Student Rep position as an ad hoc position for now; we can change the constitution in April to include the Student Rep position. Thank you, Ann!
