CW board will NOT meet April 18 as originally scheduled.  Those available to meet on April 25 instead will do so in Behmler Conference Room.


The board agreed to transfer funds earmarked for the “initiative grants” to a unique budget number that will define it as the monies to be used as part of the Mimi Frenier Award for Women’s Studies Majors.  The $2500 should be broken down into 5 awards of $500 each spanning 5 years starting in Spring of 2004.  Once the recipient is named monies can be transferred to Office of Fund Development for dispersal to the student.


There are several items on the CW website that need updating, e.g. change to bylaws, grant and cosponsor summaries, etc.  Clare will work on this over the summer.
