   2. Welcome to Lisa DiOrio.

   3. SP is the new Assistant Chair of the CC.

   4. CC reviewed CPD proposals presented by Laurie White and Dean Jane Souza for
      new electives in Protools Certification, to be made available to both matriculated
      and CPD students:
          a. #407 - PT100 - pending new proposal with name, department, and grading
          b. #408 - PT200– pending new proposal with name, department, and grading
      Dean Souza confirmed these courses will offer knowledge to prepare participants
      to take the test, not offer certification, and that NEiA will not offer cross-
      registration with other schools for these classes. CC asked that course names not
      include software names, and be run through a specific department. Laurie W will
      talk to Rob Lehman about running the course through AMT. Dean Souza will
      speak to other regionally accredited Ai schools for how they name such elective
      offerings. CPD students will not be able to take only part of the course: if
      enrolled, they are expected to attend all 14 weeks. Laurie W will revise grading
      on proposal to not include the certification test itself.
