  2. Who will be attending Iowa meeting? Is there a need to meet.
    • Randy, Tobie, Beth are attending. Linda is not. We'll meet informally sometime if it works.
    • We've been invited to attend the SIG Leadership Training on Saturday by Larry Jackson, regarding use of eXtension for PD delivery.
  3. Discussion on Beth acting as Chair for 09-10' and Randy taking over SIG Liaison.
  4. On-line PD delivery options and connecting with eXtension until the ACE web 2.0 effort is viable.
    • Randy still has 4 sessions from 2008 conference waiting to be posted when there is somewhere to post them.
    • We're not sure what this committee's role is in PD Delivery
    • Are we to sponsor something, or just support what SIGs are doing?
    • Linda: ALI will be going all distance-deliver next year. Trying to make it a scholarship or discount for ACE members to participate. Nebraska would still be producing the content for the ALI.

    • Elaine rotates off. Rob and Amy have asked to be replaced.
    • Suggested names are needed. Tobie has someone in mind and will ask.
