PERSON PRESIDING:  CATHERINE RIGSBY

 

ACTIONS OF MEETING:

 

Description of Action:

Rigsby distributed a copy of The Guidelines for Research

Grants Awarded in 1998-1999 .  Rigsby proposed a letter

indicating a ranking, as well as a summary of the

committee's deliberations, be sent to each applicant.  A

checklist completed by a recorder was also considered.  It

was recommended that each member serve as a recorder

for approximately 3 proposals.  A subcommittee consisting

of Catherine, David D., Dawn C., and Resa C. was created

to examine idea/content of a checklist.  Other suggestions

included: 

 

M.S. suggests specific dates to turn in yellow sheets. 

 

Larry M. suggests including in the letter the order-comments

(thus no summary letter needed)

considered revising to read "double-spaced, at best 12-point

font, 1 inch margins, 4 page maximum."
