Howes had previously mailed to the Executive Committee and other participants in the IAS Planning Retreat the final summary of that retreat (held 18-19 February 2000 at St. Mary-of-the-Wood College), in which responses to several earlier e-mail versions were considered. She also distributed three "Action Items for the Executive Committee from the Planning Retreat," action on the first (#1) of which was handled above by Frazier's motion. Item #2 was that the Executive Committee recommend that the Council direct the Academy Foundation Committee to move assets within the Wright Fund to meet the needs of the research budget presented in the Report of the Planning Retreat. This item was agreed to unanimously.
In lieu of Instead of; in place of; in substitution of. It does not mean in addition to. item #3, Frazier moved that the Executive Committee recommend to the IAS Council and the membership that not more than $15,000 per year for a period not to exceed five years be transferred from the Foundation Invested Income Account to the Academy Operating Fund. Passed unanimously.
Since Frank Guthrie, Chair, Academy Foundation Trustees, could not attend this meeting, Shaffer entered for the record Guthrie's e-mail personal comments of 12 April 2000 indicating that the five goals presented from the IAS Planning Retreat are "overly optimistic op·ti·mist

New Business: Howes appointed Marianna J. Zamlauski-Tucker to the Research Grants Committee for one year in lieu of Anne Spacie. Shaffer reported that Robert Howe There have been several people named Robert Howe:
Shaffer reported that 39 state agencies have come together to coordinate GIS (1) (Geographic Information System) An information system that deals with spatial information. Often called "mapping software," it links attributes and characteristics of an area to its geographic location. studies, funded through the state agencies. He recommended that President Howes write an IAS commendatory com·men·da·to·ry
Serving to commend. letter to the Chair on this much-needed effort. There is another GIS meeting on 20 April 2000, and Howes appointed Ed Squiers and Robert Waltz to represent IAS at this meeting.
Another item of discussion from the IAS Planning Retreat was to change Article VI, Section 3 of the IAS Constitution on the constituency of the Executive Committee to delete the Editor of the Proceedings and to add the Chairs of the Academy Foundation Committee and the Research Grants Committee. After a brief discussion Frazier moved that the first sentence in Article VI, Section 3 be changed to read, "The Executive Committee of The Academy shall consist of the current elected officers, the immediate past president, and the chairs of the Academy Foundation Committee and Research Grants Committee." Passed unanimously. (Note that the Constitution may be amended at any annual meeting of The Academy by an affirmative AFFIRMATIVE. Averring a fact to be true; that which is opposed to negative.

President-Elect Squiers proposed three methods of increasing our IAS membership: (I) encourage more graduate student thesis presentations at the Fall meetings rather than at national meetings, (2) encourage state scientific agencies to participate in the Fall meetings, and (3) work on a mobile IAS display for appearances at HASTI HASTI Hoosier Association of Science Teachers, Inc. and other science and teaching meetings in the state.
Howes presented the items from the Planning Retreat for action by the Council.
Gommel moved to approve the first (I) action item, seconded by Frazier, although there was discussion and minor editing on #1, 4, and 5:
I. The Council of the Indiana Academy of Science sets the following goals for the Academy during the next five years:
(1.) Indiana Academy of Science will be identified as a respected voice of science in Indiana. (2.) The majority of working scientists in Indiana will be members of IAS. (3.) Indiana Academy of Science will actively promote science and science education from Kindergarten kindergarten [Ger.,=garden of children], system of preschool education. Friedrich Froebel designed (1837) the kindergarten to provide an educational situation less formal than that of the elementary school but one in which children's creative play instincts would be to graduate school and in informal science-based activities like museums. (4.) Indiana Academy of Science will promote all research in science, but especially that particularly relevant to the State of Indiana. For example, this includes such activities as studying flora and fauna fauna
All the species of animals found in a particular region, period, or special environment. Five faunal realms, based on terrestrial animal species, are generally recognized: Holarctic, including Nearactic (North America) and Paleartic (Eurasia and northern Africa); native to the state or studying the state's geology or climate. (5.) Indiana Academy of Science will be recognized as a non-partisan source of advice on issues with scientific content by state agencies, the legislature and the executive branch of state government. The Academy will take positions on issues which clearly impact the health of science in Indiana while avoiding taking issues on political issues.
The motion was approved unanimously.
II. Research grant recipients will be ineligible in·el·i·gi·ble
1. Disqualified by law, rule, or provision: ineligible to run for office; ineligible for health benefits.
2. for further funding if a satisfactory scientific record describing previously funded research is not on file.
III. The Council directs the Research Grants Committee to develop guidelines guidelines,
n.pl a set of standards, criteria, or specifications to be used or followed in the performance of certain tasks. for highly competitive Wright Grants following the model presented in the report of the Planning Retreat.
Squiers moved to approve action items II and III, seconded by Waltz, and the motion passed.
Since Council action items IV and V were negated by the preceding Executive Committee meeting, Frazier moved that the IAS Council recommend to the membership that not more than $15,000 per year for a period not to exceed five years be transferred from the Foundation Invested Income Account to the Academy Operating Fund. Seconded by Waltz and approved.
Frazier also presented his motion to change IAS Constitution Article VI, Section 3 on the membership of the Executive Committee. (See Executive Committee minutes.) Passed.
