Meeting Attendance Policy & Schedule
Meetings:

As determined during the first meeting, most of the team gathering will be taking place in class and/or
after class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The group will use whatever time is allotted from Professor Perry
to work on the Team Project. During the meeting, the group will continue to endeavor the existing goals
and will decide on any further actions in order, to complete the project successfully. Moreover, the
team has agreed to meet and follow up on the project whenever additional time is required. These
meetings may occur during the weekend or weekdays after 9 15pm. Depending, on the status of the
project, the Project Manager may reserve the right to call a face to face meeting to reevaluate the
project within the given timeline.

Attendance Policy:

All team members agreed that attendance is required during this project in all classes and meetings.
However, due to everybody’s busy schedules (working a full time job, while being a full time student)
there might be a few occasions where someone needs to miss class or a meeting. In such case and out of
respect for the other team members, the Project Manager must be contacted and to be made aware of
the absence from the team meeting. Abundant participation is expected from all team members during
the project. If a team member is not achieving his or her task in the given time, the Project Manager will
need to be informed about any reason for not giving full participation and reserves the right to contact
Professor Perry. Furthermore, if at any time a team member feels the Project Manager is not meeting all
required objectives, the said team member may contact Professor Perry as well.
