         Initiative Related to Alumni Recruiters.†† Dr. Fellows reported that she and the Dean are working on an initiative related to selecting Alumni to serve as recruiters for the different programs in the COHS. Contact information for the alumni in each of the programs has been obtained in an electronic format. The electronic file is being subdivided into an electronic file for each department which will be sent to each Department Head. Department Heads are asked to review their list and select alumni from various regions throughout the United States who can be contacted to determine their interest in serving as alumni recruiters for the COHS and that department. Alumni from south Louisiana and all regions of the United States are needed. Lists of potential alumni recruiters to contact are to be sent to the Dean and Dr. Fellows. An on-line training program may be developed to help these alumni tell our story.

         Mobile Unit Reservation Form.Dr. Fellows presented three forms for consideration.  Two forms recommended were: a Reservation Request Form and a Composite Summary of Services.  The Reservation Request Form would be used when reserving the Mobile Unit.  The Composite Summary of Services would document the number of clients seen on the Unit.  Following approval from the Dean, these forms will be put on the COHS website.   Reservation forms should be submitted to Sandra Barton who will coordinate the usage of the mobile unit.  The completed Composite Summary of Services form should be turned in with the keys.
