Worked on changes to new committee charge, will forward to CARLI board for approval.  Jim asked about planned number of committee members.  Tom to ask for details at next meeting. Jen reports CARLI has discussed internally; no consensus reached.  Suggestions include a larger initial group, reduced as terms expire.  There is some concern over fewer volunteer opportunities for members with merging of multiple technical services committees.
