I. Welcome and Introductions
II. Agenda Approval/Adjustment
March minutes were approved electronically and Duffy Tweedy posted them to the website.
2006 SCIL/CCLI Pre-conference Update
CARL responded enthusiastically to SCIL's idea to record the SCIL/CCLI Pre-conference in order to create a podcast. UCSD can rent some of the necessary equipment to SCIL members for the conference. Katy Farrell will inquire with Suellen Cox regarding possible funds for these rentals.
Amy Wallace reported that the pre-conference speakers are communicating via email in order to prepare remarks and avoid unnecessary repetition.
Program Planning Update
Debbi Renfrow presented the Spring Program agenda and the proposed evaluation form for review. The evaluation form includes language inviting attendees to provide their contact information to CARL.
C. LOEX 2007 Planning
Allie Carr was lauded for her excellent website design. She will incorporate the suggestions for content areas and other additions in the next iteration. Dominique Turnbow offered to make a flyer incorporating the image of the webpage to be distributed at LOEX 06.
Amy Wallace invites continued suggestions for speakers.
SCIL Website Redesign
The redesign is in progress. Kimberly Wilcox and Duffy Tweedy are collaborating on the project.
CARL Newsletter Submissions
The deadline for the June 15 newsletter is May 10. Maryann Hight will prepare the report on the Spring Program and submit it to the newsletter within a few days of the deadline. Dominique Turnbow will submit an announcement calling for volunteers for LOEX 07 preparation, making it clear again that volunteering does not secure anyone's registration.
Dominique Turnbow will post an announcement to the CARL listserv when the meeting minutes get posted to the SCIL website.
Soliciting non-CARL Members, CARL Executive Board
SCIL will collect contact information from program participants who wish to be contacted by CARL with membership and other information. In an email to Katy Farrell, Judy Lee suggested the following language:
___ Yes, I am a current member of CARL.
___ No, I am not a member of CARL.
___ Please send me more information on CARL
Information collected in this way will be forwarded to the CARL Membership Chair.
SCIL Table at CARL Conference Lunch
Katy Farrell will send an announcement about the SCIL table to the CARL listserv. She will also inquire with CARL regarding additional tables assigned to SCIL.
