Approval of December Meeting Minutes. The minutes from the December 11, 2014 meeting were approved as written.
Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD)
As discussed at the December meeting, P. Dillon sent a letter to upper administration regarding problems with inadequate resources available through the RCPD. Council members, among others, were copied on the memo. The need/desire to send another letter from the Council was discussed. It was the consensus of the group that it would be a good idea to do so. P. Dillon volunteered to draft the letter and send to members for edits/comments.

This topic was tabled until the February meeting when Prof. Chivukula can be available.

The three subcommittees appointed to review the MMG Bylaws reported on their section and offered comments/suggestions where appropriate. F. Peterson will compile comments and forward them to the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics.
