Since the last meeting….
Shake Rattle and Rocks > one of the teachers was really impressed by the women scientist turnout. Way to be great role models guys!!!
Beth suggested that send emails to the entire department for general meeting emails, we will do that from now on but other events via listserv. Add sentence that says how to join the listserv.
Let Allison know if you want to be on the listserv email@example.com
Update from Claire:
Art Class feedback from last semester attendees would recommend it to other and the fact that AWG funded it was really important to people and attendees wanted to take it again.
For spring semester claire is sending around a questionnaire to tailor the course for what people want.
