2. Introductions

Leslie Calman introduced herself and the Manager of the Center, Valerie
Green. The members of the board were asked to introduce themselves.

Leslie described the Scholar and the Feminist Conference as a one day
conference held in April focusing on topics pertaining to women. Participants
should include both activists and scholars.

She also noted that the attendance at the conference has steadily
declined in past years- from 800 participants at some points to 180 participants
last year. In order to revitalize the interest of the Barnard Community and the
community outside its gates, an interesting topic, a dynamic speaker, and an
innovative format are needed.

Leslie also added that the 1993 conference will celebrate the twentieth
anniversary of the Center, so we should aim for a particularly memorable event.
