Minutes of the Rights and Responsibilities Committee
Present: Kim Dulin, Renata Kalnins (Chair), Elizabeth McKeigue, Kazuko Sakaguchi,
Erin Wise, Kim Dulin, Melanie Wisner Absent: Patty Hatch
New Chair for R & R Committee
Elizabeth reported that she was unable to get in touch with Patty to discuss taking over the chair for the coming year, since Patty has been ill. Elizabeth will follow up with Patty and discuss the possibility of having the two of them serve as co-chairs. If Patty and Elizabeth are unable to take over as chairs, other committee members expressed willingness to take over leadership proposing several other options. The committee decided to hold elections by e-mail to facilitate the election process during the summer months since differing vacation schedules make it difficult to schedule a meeting.
