1. The CUWL Summer Conference 2011 will be June 1 & 2 at the Pyle Center in Madison.
2. A faculty representative is still needed for the Executive Committee. CUWL liaisons are also needed on some committees. The committee is in the process of naming a faculty rep from Extension.
3. Calendar for CUWL. It was decided not to have monthly conference calls and to resume the practice of having 4 face-to-face meetings per year.  The summer meeting will be July 20. The fall meeting in Superior will be set for Monday, Sept. 27, and Tuesday, Sept. 28. The winter meeting will be in Madison to coincide with WLA Legislative Day, but that date has not yet been set. The spring meeting will be April 11 & 12, but the place has not yet been set. It might be in Stevens Point if the ITMC decides to meet there and have a joint meeting with CUWL. The summer 2011 meeting will be in July, place and date yet to be decided.
