The ad hoc Strategic Planning Committee meeting was called to order at 2:10 p.m.  The Committee reviewed a final cost comparison for the two vendor finalists.  Discussion followed.  After motion duly made and seconded the Committee recommends to the Board of Trustees that Stamats, Inc. be hired to perform a branding identity study of Northern Michigan University pending a final negotiation of terms and conditions.  This motion is not part of the formal recommendations and requires a motion and vote of the full Board.



The meeting was adjourned at 2:45 p.m.



Respectfully submitted,




L. Garnet Lewis, Chair
