The Board met with the AssociateUniversity Librarian for Administrative Services and the Academic PersonnelCoordinator on January 10, 1997. The AUL apprised the Board of the needfor confidentiality and the importance of the Board^Òs charge; theAPC outlined the agenda and gave a recommended finishing date for the Board^Òsbusiness. The Board was able to meet all suggested deadlines, and all reviewpackets were returned with recommendations to the Academic Personnel Coordinatorbefore their due dates at the Office of the Provost.

The Academic Personnel Coordinatorpointed out to the Chair that the review procedure as followed in the caseof one-step non-promotional merit increases differed slightly from thatspecified in the C-9 document.
