The minutes of the previous two meetings were discussed and it was agreed that David Spalding would do more work on the minutes for the February 28 meeting based on comments received from David Gale and Tim Dreisbach. Frank said he had sent some comments which he will resend. It was agreed to approve them at the April 1 meeting.

Other business:

Frank is concerned about how "Speaking of Dartmouth" described the candidates when it went out yesterday. Frank has gotten some comments. He said that the official slate was nominated by the Nominating Committee, and that would be more accurate. Bill suggested we look for appropriate language. David Spalding explained 11 were nominated by the Nominating Committee and 11 were nominated by petition. He mentioned that Frank and Bert turned down their nominations by the Nominating Committee, therefore, it is accurate to say that 11 were nominated by petition, 11 by the Nominating Committee and two by both. David Spalding agreed to change it from reading as official Association nominated to nominated by the Nominating Committee. Frank pointed out that both slates are seeking to brand themselves.

The meeting adjourned at 12:32 p.m.

The next scheduled meeting is April 1, 2008 at 8:00 p.m. EDT.

Respectfully submitted,

David Spalding
