·       Newsletter

·       A monthly Burroughs Bulletin feature

The group discussed meeting improvements for 2015-2016.  All agreed it would be beneficial to track topics that come up every year, e.g. what was discussed previously and what was the resolution/why did it not get resolved.

Kelly Robbert, Joe Eskola, Dena McDonald-Watschke, Steve Bieringer, and Amy Hasbargen will be missed (Site Council terms are complete).
