Comments from the group about the Joint PBT Meeting on November 22nd - 

Need a longer meeting.

Still need to discuss WSCH as it would be affected by potential staff reductions.

Recommendation to schedule the joint meeting earlier in the quarter.

Needed more information in the notes about what was said.

Communication between instruction and student services still needs improvement.

The meeting did emphasize how a cut in one area affects another and the need to work together.

Many returning veterans in January. We will need to look at what we need to provide.
