The meeting was called to order at approximately 11:45 a.m. ET, due to a mix-up with the password to join the conference call.


ROLL CALL: Sue Sinclair, Kanoe Bandy, Terry Gamble, Michael De Hoog, Erica Elder Jayme Frazier, Lisa Huntley, Kim Lester, Jane Peterson, Mike Trame


Absent from the meeting: Vanessa Schroeder (possibly due to the phone mix-up)



Sue welcomed all attendees to the meeting and took roll.


I. Review of Minutes

The minutes from the previous meeting were reviewed. Sue mentioned that she had submitted the Request to Present form and a request for a booth for the 2007 convention for Two Year Colleges to use.


The committee then approved the minutes, which were now ready to be posted.


II. Recruiting a Two-Year College Athlete


Sue discussed the AVCA convention and the Two Year College participation. She mentioned she had put in the applications for a booth and for a seminar session. Sue went on to begin discussion about what to include for the Convention - what kind of information should be included about the players  and what form (printed, CD, or on the Web) the information should be presented in.


The conversation turned to the form Kanoe had sent in. Everyone seemed fairly pleased with the form, but had some comments on some modifications/changes to it. Some suggestions included:

* Adding career stats

* Removing coaches comments section

* Add coaches email ids

* Whether to include or not include a player's photo


More discussion on this form will continue at the next Two Year College committee call, and all forthcoming committee calls through the year heading towards the convention.


III. Two-Year College Web page on AVCA Web site

Note: While this was item III on the agenda, it was discussed second during the call.


The committee went through the draft of the web template that was sent in. They went through each category of the template, made comments and suggestions (see new markup). Overall, it was liked. Sue asked to have the template updated for discussion at the next committee call.


Sue then gave a "homework" assignment to the committee to go out and gather information on their divisions/conferences to see if they have the information to place in each category of the template. This will be reviewed at the next committee call, too, and, ultimately, used to create a page for each division/conference.


IV. Salary Survey


A review of the draft sent in for the salary survey was reviewed. A question arose as to why there were no questions asking about specific dollar amounts of coaches salaries.


Sue then asked the specific question of - what do we really want out of this survey?


The committee then made some specific suggestions on changes to the draft of the survey, which included adding a dollar question for head coach and assistant coach, removing a few questions in each section, changing some wording (example: Classes to Tuition), and changing some of the selections under Supplemental pay (which will consist of only three now: Camps, Bonus and Other).


The salary survey draft will be updated for review at the next committee meeting.


V. Membership


Due to time constraints, Sue asked if everyone was ok with reviewing this topic next time. Everyone agreed and the meeting was adjourned.


Meeting adjourned at 12:50 p.m. ET


The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 15, 2007 at 11:30 a.m. ET (10:30 a.m. CT) Note that this is one week later than normal, as Sue will be at the AVCA Board Meeting and will not return home until May 8, which would not give her enough time to prepare for the meeting at its regular time on May 9.
