Dear COI/COC Committee Here is an agenda for the meeting today.

My thought on 3 is to keep it at "periscope depth". To go over what is in the book without getting bogged down in great detail.

My thought on 4 is that we can simplify matters conceptually and practically by separating the COI from the COC. We need to deal with the COI by the March meeting of the Senate. So we could focus our effort there for the next 2 months (without, of course, forgetting the COC). And then use the subsequent 2 months working on the COC to get to the May meeting of the Senate. COI and COC really are quite different matters and it might be a good idea to separate them. For example, the question of the "short form versus the long form" is a COI matter while the question of "1 day in 7 versus 1 day in 5" is a COC matter to raise just 2 issues.

My thought on 5 is to learn from the committee how to structure the town hall meeting - what do WE as a committee hope to learn from the meeting and how can we acomplish that best. We have 3 presenters (Rich Linton, Rob Horner, Carl Bybee). What advice can we give them and how do you want me as "moderator" to structure the remainder of the meeting.

My thought on 6 is we need to decide what to do next. Obviously, next week, we want to discuss the town hall meeting. But do we want to follow up on Geri Richmond's suggestion to invite Patty Snopkowski. I think this is a good idea, but obviously this needs to be a committee discussion.

We have a full agenda ahead of us. I look forward to seeing you this afternoon.

Respectfully submitted
