Approval of October 26, 2010 Minutes – Draft minutes were provided to the task group via e-mail for their review prior to the meeting. Eric Lunn moved to accept the minutes, Julie Evans seconded and, after discussion, the motion passed via a unanimous roll call vote. There were questions regarding the amendment to the first meeting’s minutes and agreement that those minutes would be amended. There was a concern that the review of the open meeting and open record statute which was provided by General Counsel did not appear in the minutes. There was also a general conversation about what should be included in the minutes.
Questions/Feedback from the Last Meeting – There were no questions or feedback from the last meeting.

Review Results of Assessment – The results of the online assessment were reviewed.
Discussion of Assessment – Discussion was held regarding the results of the assessment. It was suggested that four categories be defined: (1) UND athletic use; (2) UND non-athletic use; (3) Non-UND supporting use, e.g., Alumni & Foundation; and (4) Non-UND non-supporting use, e.g., community businesses. It was suggested that Grand Forks community businesses may appreciate receiving the final assessment results.
Tasks to be Completed by the Next Meeting – Task group members will have access to the online assessment results. Members are asked to review the results of the online assessment and complete a second assessment prior to the next meeting. The second assessment results will be reviewed at the next meeting.
