Members were reminded to send a representative to the Executive Committee meetings when they are unable to attend a meeting.


Community Forum

The intent of the community forum being held on August 13, 3:00 p.m. in Pa`ina is to inform people of our strategic plan and to seek community input for plans and future directions. There will be fifteen facilitators. Facilitators will be meeting on Wednesday, August 11 at 10:00 a.m. Approximately 30 people from the campus and community have confirmed their attendance thus far. Calls should be made to invitees early next week to confirm attendance.


Biennium Budget

Biennium Budget information was distributed to committee members via email. We still do not know what the System is going to recommend to the Board of ORegents. . The Board of Regents will be going through a budget workshop this month, after which time we should be hearing something. MCC is going forward with ABIT as our top priority. The Governors budget guideliguidelines es do not provide for any any any new general fund requests.


Land Grant Mission Task Group

Federal resources were allocated to institutions around the country primarily to promote Agriculture and community education. Question was raised as to how resources should be redistributed. Maui Land and Pine and the Farm Bureau did not feel that they were adequately supported. Need to look at how we might share resources more equally in land grant. Suzette will organize a meeting to look at instructional resource needs. It was recommended that Ann Emmsley and James Boswell participate in the discussion prior to the next Land Gant Mission Task Group meeting on August 19, 2004.


ABIT Progress

LetterLetter from Richard Winn, Assistant Director of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, granting eligibility to MCC to add the Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Applied Business and Information Technology was distributed to committee members. David Grooms was commended for his hard work in completing the eligibility application. MCC can expect a visit in Spring, 2005. We will be responding to some of the questions and concerns. An informational meeting is beingwill be held on Monday, August 9, 5:30 p.m. in Ka`a`ike 105AB. Ad and press release have gone out with another ad going out on August 5. It was suggested that we should look at televising the session on our MCC Channel.. Mike Mike Albert will be videotaping the session. Diane

Meyer will follow up on suggestions. Pat Adams and Scott Broadbent are working with University Relations to have brochure completed to publicize statewide.
