Present: Wixson, Sparks, Huckins, Fahey, Landry, Kent, Moore, Levy, Bernier, Hage, Mathis, Ramsay, Barry, Campbell, Crangle. Excused: Cantor. Absent: Quigley.

The minutes from March 25th were accepted as written.

Bill Crangle’s third quarter budget update was approved and will be sent to the campus.

The budget challenges letter handout is a rewrite of the CBC letter from Dr. Wharton that was discussed at the last meeting. More discussion ensued on the format of the listing of budget items. Crangle will make the suggested changes and submit them to Dr. Wharton.

The committee talked a little about the April 30th campus-wide budget meeting to be held in Heritage Commons. The president’s budget challenges letter will be the basis for the group discussion. An invitation to all department chairs was suggested. There will be more about this at the April 22 CBC meeting.

The graphed information requested by David Kent was presented by Bill Crangle. Suggestions were made on format. There was heavy discussion on the information in the charts with some intense feelings being shared on issues of presentation and interpretation.

A budget model from Ed Wixson was distributed as Model G and discussed briefly.

The next CBC meeting is on Tuesday, April 22 at 8am in HUB 119.
