Dr. Lofaso called the meeting to order.  The April 10, 2014 meeting is canceled due to the absence of several committee members who will be attending the New Horizons conference.

Ms. Velez presented the entries for the QEP logo contest.  There were a total of sixteen submissions.  The Committee discussed and reviewed the entries and agreed that the overall quality of the submissions was excellent.  After discussion, Ms. Velez made a motion to choose submission #5 with the modification to add “CVCC” to the logo.  The motion was seconded by Ms. French and unanimously approved by the Committee.

Dr. Lofaso made a motion to select entry #8 as the 2nd place award recipient.  The motion was seconded by Mr. Gatti and approved by the Committee with one abstention.

Ms. Velez will notify Mr. Riley of the decisions and ask that he obtain permission from all of those who submitted to use their work for promotional events and for future initiatives related to the QEP.   

Mr. Sandidge presented a draft of the QEP budget for 2014-15.  Items related to supplies, professional development, and marketing will be submitted through the College’s annual budgeting process.  Mr. Sandidge will address renovation and personnel costs with Dr. Capps and Mr. Poole.  Mr. Sandidge will take recommendations from the Committee for consideration of the long-term plans related to a Learning Resource Center and associated improvements in support of the QEP.

Dr. Lofaso, Dr. Randolph and Ms. Velez are planning to visit the Virginia Western Community College Learning Resource Center and Writing Center on April 9. 

The meeting was adjourned at 1:55 p.m.  The next meeting will be at noon on April 17.
