The ad hoc Strategic Planning Committee meeting was called to order at 8:35 a.m. Mr. Leach indicated that Ms. Anthos negotiated the final terms of the contract with Stamats, Inc. to eliminate the creative branding marketing phase, add and repurpose research dollars, and provide a travel ceiling. The revised cost of the contract is $130,000 including travel. The price of the original proposal was $164,000 plus travel. Stamats, Inc. will honor the creative branding marketing phase if NMU decides to include this at the end of the branding study.
Ms. Anthos reviewed the proposed timeline. Stamats, Inc. has indicated the willingness to work around key campus dates such as NMU Board of Trustees meetings and the academic calendar.
Stamats, Inc. requested the Committee recommend a team of 7-9 individuals as a working group. The Committee decided on the following individuals to serve in this capacity:
L. Garnet Lewis, Board of Trustees Member
Cindy Paavola, Communications and Marketing
Gerri Daniels, Admissions
Justin Brugman, ASNMU
Kathy Godec, Staff
Cynthia Prosen, Community
Kaylie Anthos, Purchasing

The ad hoc Strategic Planning Committee will continue to meet in conjunction with full Board of Trustees meetings.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:53 a.m.
