                         - where you see your career going, were you see the profession going, what changes
                                                                                               th

                        Eligible students interested in formulating a design submission will be asked to
                         address the topic of “Blurring Boundaries”. The topic is far reaching. The solution will
                         be decidedly more pointed. Student submissions should demonstrate a design
                         solution that in some way addresses the interior environment as an extension or
                         expression of something “outside”. The focus will be the students’ own, but the
                         analysis and presentation of that analysis should be universally recognizable.

             Garrett leather samples arrived.
             Picked up fabric samples from ISLG in Los Gatos. Some if not most will go straight to
                RAFT.
             Jane Lily asked to get in touch with Heather Brown regarding the donation of more
                fabric samples. I will pick up the samples next week.
             Magazines keep disappearing. Marianne will make a small poster/sign to be posted
                above magazine rack.
             Question: Are there any restrictions as to what we can use to attach things to the
                walls? – Marianne to check with Diane
             Question: Would it be possible to have a small stack of thank-you notes printed with
                our logo on it to send to donors of materials? Some donations are arranged by phone
                or through contacts and we cannot thank them via email. It might also be a nice touch
                to send something handwritten. Cost: $ 5.00 to $ 10.00 on various web-based
                printers. Various member will donate, for these. Molly, Kanthi, Kendall, Marianne, to
                work together to find logo.
             Suggestion: Give design library rules to instructors of ID 05 and ID 25 (other) to hand
                out to students at beginning of class. Post library rules visible in library. Clarify use of
                fabric samples in form of a separate sign in back of room. Will check with instructors
                regarding this.

                      Lunch N' Learn was very successful.
                      Turn-out was quite good, even with the short promotional time frame - 9
            people plus speakers attended
                      Chevy's was a nice venue for the event and a nice change of pace.
                      The event was within budget - of the $150.00 allotted, $125.00 was spent
     Divya, Meera and Purvi were wonderful and shared many pearls of wisdom and insights
            o program could benefit from providing a more in depth coverage of drapery and
                upholstery techniques.
            o portfolio courses should be given EARLY in program, many students unaware of
                the need to preserve or photograph project components lose out on the
                opportunity to create a comprehensive portfolio
            o being ACTIVE in as many Club and Association activities is EXTREMELY
                beneficial to securing a job quickly later on!!!! (good angle to promote the
                WVCIDC?)
            o knowledge of Auto Cad and Hand drafting are used and necessary in the
                industry TODAY!
