Web: http://mcsp.wartburg.edu/iucsc05 Email: email@example.comThe SIGCSE task force leader, Mark Johnson (Central College), updated us on the status of their efforts to make us an Iowa ACM SIGCSE Chapter. A set of Bylaws that had been drafted was presented to the group. There appeared to be nobody willing to take on the role of SIGCSE Chairperson this year. A vote to move ahead was taken, and although nobody opposed it only 9 voted in favor and 16 abstained. It was suggested that we not act on this until next year, since we already had volunteers to host next year's meeting without the extra burden of chapter administration and that the Bylaws and other work already done would be just as useful then. A vote was taken and the overwelming majority of attendees agreed. The Bylaws documents and email for the task force leader are below. A version of the Bylaws that shows changes from ACM's template is included, but to take advantage of Word's tracked-changes features you may need to save the target file on your computer first and open it with Word.

Miriam Ubben outlined the role of SITI and explored possible relationships with Iowa's CS faculty. She encouraged us to become members, offering a deeply discounted "institutional" membership price of $200 for small schools. Institutional membership allows all CS/IT students, faculty and staff to benefit from SITI programs and services. This includes workshops, speaker programs, networking with colleagues, collaborative grants, lobbying efforts, job announcements, and the SITI newsletter. Faculty at the meeting suggested that SITI could be a clearinghouse for internship opportunities in Iowa and student projects sponsors. Miriam also said that SITI might be able to offer location and administrative support for our annual meeting if that would help us become a SIGCSE chapter. SITI has access to meeting rooms in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City.
There were a total of 26 faculty from 15 different schools who attended IUCSC'04 plus one non-faculty guest/presenter. A student (not listed below) assisted with setup and monitoring the publisher's exhibits.

Future planners may appreciate knowing the food consumption and cost. Catering with Sodexo was a requirement (at schools with Sodexo contracts), which means that costs were higher than when handled by us. If we had 30-35 in attendance, most everything would have disappeared. Given our attendance (25 attended the entire day) we could have cut back to 2 dozen muffins, a dozen fewer beverages overall (unopened juice bottles from the morning were available for afternoon break), and less coffee (the afternoon coffee was not needed). Here is what was ordered from Sodexo:
Morning (paid by Addison Wesley) 2 gals. regular coffee 23.90 1 gal. decaf coffee 11.95 3 doz. assorted bottled juice 54.00 3 doz. mini muffins 17.85 2 doz. assorted mini strudel 17.90 ------- SUB-TOTAL 125.60 Afternoon: (paid by McGraw Hill) 1 gal. coffee 11.95 (but not delivered, nor missed) 18 bottled waters 27.00 18 assorted sodas 22.50 3 doz. gourmet cookies 26.85 ------- SUB-TOTAL 88.30 (but discounted to $65.85)Some expenses were absorbed by Drake and Graceland, such as secretarial support, time, and printouts (schedule and signup sheets). We remembered to get nametags and markers as folks started to arrive.
