The Minutes of the September 20, 2010 meeting were approved with minor corrections. 

Stephanie reminded the group of Women’s History Month in March of 2011.  The theme is: “Our History is Our Strength.”  Kathy suggested we look for a keynote speaker for the Theo Kalikow Award/POWA Award Ceremony from the field of science or psychology – two areas that are many times overlooked.

 There is a meeting today at 3 pm of the committee planning the Young Women’s Conference to be held here in March 2011 for girls age 14-18.

Stephanie then suggested we break up into our groups and brainstorm ideas and suggestions. 

 Here is the list of groups and members:

Theo Kalikow Award/POWA Award Ceremony:    Anne Lebreche, Alice O’Connor and Mary Washburn

Family Orientated Policy and Practices:     Nancy Betchart, Cresta LaMontagne, John C. Clark, Kathy Tardiff and Alice O’Connor

The members present at this meeting had very productive group meetings.

The next meeting is scheduled for MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2010, at 1 pm in Hyde 435H.

Respectfully submitted:  Mary Gardocki Washburn, Scribe
