    Notes on CSCI 25th Meeting June 28th 11-12noon CSci Conference room

    Present: (JM), (RR),, (RJB).

    We will hold a recognition lunch on January 31st 12-2pm.

    We have a DNS address for our web site:

    We have done the paperwork for a Foundation account -- name CS25. Signatories: RJB and JM.

    RJB presented some photos from the first years of the department. Scanned in JPEGs on

    Jo presented some estimates for a lunch in the Obershaw room: $75 to set up room. Buffet $16/head, Waiter $18/head. Say $2,500 total. No figures for Santos Manual Building.

    Roberto says its OK for us to make initial contact with vendors and local companies.... but CNS will send the formal letter. He would like a list of companies.

    He noted that we could charge $5,000 to a sponsor to be "Chair" or $2,500 to be a co-chair... each with a reserved table and the company logo being displayed prominently. Also normal tickets: $15 should cover costs.

    We debated whether to create scholarships or aim for an endowed chair($2M) or professorship ($1M) when RJB retires(2012?). The 25th lunch would be a good place to announce this.

    Looked at Alumni database... Many people to contact.

    Next meeting: July 19th 11am in CSci309.
