Meeting and Committees

I have spent the entire semester running from meeting to meeting thinking it was for the good of the division, the school and my future. But after experiencing a painfully unproductive and unfair meeting I began to take inventory of the past semester and all the hours I have given to this cause.

Meeting consist of: Instructional Council, College Council, Basic Skills task force, Room Utilization Committee, Program Review Task force (just to name a few) And I have spent my afternoons this semester going from meeting to meeting... some times in the same day.

What has been accomplished... Nothing absolutely nothing. New plan for the new year... focus more on the students in my classes and the division obligations and little or no time on meeting marathons.

Note to self: if it ain't productive, don't be there.
