HSC, Room 106
Special Note: Since no minutes were taken at this meeting, (too many absent) only the
committee reports will be shown.
The Spring 2014 "joint campus" catalog is at the printers. This will be the first catalog where all
of the campus programs will be listed in one catalog......each campus will continue to be
separated into its own section. This joint catalog will make it easier for ALL members to look at
the programs of other campuses and see if they would like to attend some classes that interest
them. The "global membership" will be $55.00 and will allow you to attend classes any or all
campuses.....of course some classes may have additional fees for supplies. Catalogs are
expected to be mailed to ALL members by the last week of December. The catalog will be
posted on the college website shortly thereafter.
The Fall session is winding down and will end with our Holiday Party on Friday, December 13th,
from 11:00-1:00. This is a potluck where people can bring a dish to share and drop in when it is
convenient for them during the stated times. We do have some giveaways for each ALL
member that attends.
The Spring semester will be here quicker than you can say Happy New Year. Registration will be
Saturday, January 11th from 10:00-Noon. We need to recruit people for Registration.....it takes
a bunch of people in various jobs to make Registration successful.....so ask the people you know
in ALL to see if they will volunteer. We will have a volunteer Sign-Up Sheet at the Holiday
Party. Encourage people to get involved with Registration and Committees; especially the

event that other programs have something going on.
