gotes on an Advisory Committee for Women's Center September, 1971

I suggest people be asked to‘serve for two years, a term whidl will provide both flexibility and continuity

I also suggest that the members have a real tie to Barnard College. (We may also wish the Advisory Committee to include people from the University. This decision will have to be made.) We should then go on to create a Board of Consultants in order to get the ideas and advice of women who are not a part of either the College or the University, e.g. Elga Wasserman. (Annette Baxter and Elly Elliott have already suggested some names for a Board of Consultants.)

Two people have already been asked to serve on the Advisory Committee: Jane Weidlund, '46; and Jackie Greenspon, the Chairman of the Alumnae Vocational Advisory Committee.

The constituencies to be represented on the Advisory Committee should probably include: l)alumnae; 2) faculty; 3) students; 4) staff; and 5) trustees.

Jane Moorman

Sarah Johnson Winnie Price

Trustees Elizabeth Janeway

Alumnae Mary Louise Reid

Darlene Shapiro Levy '60 Students

Janeway; from the alumnae Pat Herman, Marilyn glfis Wachtel, Anne Grant West, Annette Niemtzow; and two stu ents, Viky

Taylor and Judi Rachelson, neither of whom are still at Barnard. Elly Elliott, Pat Graham, Jane Gould, and Barbara

Hertz were also on the Task Force.

8. I am worried about the legitimacy of having the Executive Committee appoint an Advisory Committee on its own authority. Shouldn't we ask various faculty, student groups, etc. for '
