1)                  Minutes of the April 1, 2003, SPT meeting had been e-mailed to everyone.  There was one typographical error.

 

2)                  It was suggested to begin the meetings promptly at 7:25 am instead of attempting to begin at 7:15 am.  There was no objection. All future meetings will begin promptly at 7:25 am.

 

3)                  Since the majority of members were choosing not to eat breakfast, it was suggested that the meeting location be moved from the Caroline Room. After a short discussion, there were no objections.  Bryan will attempt to reserve a new location and notify everyone.
