  4. Discussion:  CAETS Statements

Purpose:  Given the experience of the past 2 years, it seems that there are differing views among member academies regarding the appropriate substance, form, and target audience for CAETS statements.  It would be useful to agree upon key elements that could be presented to the Council for their endorsement.

  1. CAETS Website Requirements

Purpose:  In attempting to get competitive quotes for a rebuild of the CAETS website it became clear that a solid requirements document is needed in order to effectively evaluate submissions.  Advance materials will include a draft document showing core requirements and options from the Sec/Treas perspective; it would be helpful to have inputs from the Board regarding the most valuable options that should be considered.
