The ad hoc Strategic Planning Committee meeting was called to order at 3:00 p.m.


The Committee reviewed additional information on methods of statistical analysis received from the two vendors.  The Committee concurred that both vendors have similar approaches to performing research.  After further discussion the Committee requested Ms. Anthos to do a detailed cost comparison between the two vendors with the intent of clarifying with the vendors what exactly is included in the proposals.  This information will be provided to the Committee prior the next meeting.  A meeting will be scheduled prior to the February Board meeting.  The Committee was requested to come to the next meeting with a vendor recommendation and a reason for choosing the vendor.


The meeting was adjourned at 3:45 p.m.



Respectfully submitted,




L. Garnet Lewis, Chair
