Call to Order

Chair Gary Matzke (Virginia Commonwealth) called the Council of Faculties (COF) Business Meeting to order at 2:05 pm in Salons J and K of the Crystal Gateway Marriott, Arlington, Virginia, on Monday, February 8, 2010.

Introductions and Comments

Chair Matzke began by welcoming everyone and introducing other members of the COF Administrative Board including Dana Hammer (Secretary; Washington), John Bosso (Chair-elect; South Carolina-MUSC), and Julie Szilagyi (Immediate Past Chair; Houston). Virginia (Ginger) Scott (Chair-elect designee; West Virginia) and Cecilia Plaza (AACP Staff) were unavailable due to inclimate weather. Chair Matzke previewed the agenda and reminded participants that the link to the agenda and minutes were emailed to members prior to the meeting.

Quorum Committee Report

Quorum committee reported at 2:30pm we had a quorum with 29 members representing 28 schools.

Report of the Chair

Chair Matzke reported that we are halfway through our year's business and the committees and task forces are working hard. We started off the year with the 2009 Annual meeting theme of "Starting the Revolution." We are hoping to continue to propose solutions. The major questions we asked then were:

* How are we developing leadership in our students and faculty?

* How does your institution permit risk taking and learning from mistakes?

* Are we resting on our past laurels? Are we striving to improve upon what we do?

A question of late is: How involved have you and your colleagues been in the health care reform dialogue? What awaits us in the next 6 months? Continued work from the task forces and committees. For the rest of us, the question is how can we contribute?? We encourage you to contact us with your ideas. The call for volunteers for next year's committees and task forces will be issued later this spring.

Report of the Secretary

Dana Hammer reported that the minutes of the 2009 COF Business Meeting held July 20,2009 in Boston, MA, were available via download from the AACP website. An email invitation was sent to members in January with the link. The minutes were received and approved.
