Hello CC,

The more I think about this, the more I think having the MAPC meeting at
WilMar is not a good idea. Students had been feeling left out of MAPC (or
not taken seriously) for some time. I think this has begun to change for the
better. Having a meeting so far from campus could set us back.

I remember when I was a student. Taking a bus out to the East side was a big
deal and seemed very inconvenient. I think we would do well to have this
meeting off campus, but not too far away so that we can continue to involve
students.

I talked to X about this and she was fine with looking for additional
locations, if someone else was willing to do it. She is busy with work
tomorrow. I asked a friend (who is retired and available tomorrow) to call
around for some other options. It can't hurt to try.

Peace,
X
