Planning Committee Guidelines

Bev has created a draft of these guidelines and the Board will meet to make revisions and finalize the guidelines so that the members can review and vote on the formation of the committee.


Mary Ann McLane from the University of Delaware has asked if KEYPOCC would like to participate in the planning of the Spring 2006 ASCLS regional meeting. Dawn and Bev have agreed to serve on the planning committee which will be meeting in August 2005.

Pittsburgh group

POCC’s from the Pittsburgh area have approached one of the vendors concerning forming an adjunct relationship with KEYPOCC so that they can learn what it takes to start up their own POCC group. The membership felt that this would be a good idea and asked that the vendor have someone from Pittsburgh contact one of the officers.
