highlighting progress that has been made on the "Artists of Wayne
County" web site, fund distributions for that project, concerns
regarding future upgrades for our computer as IU East will not be able
to offer an upgrade to our existing system. Jodi Johnson suggested
contacting Kara Monroe at Ivy Tech to see if Ivy Tech could offer
similar support to what we have received from IU East in the past.

policy additions and
corrections suggested by the Mission/Vision/Programs committee.
