    Greg - an award is a good idea,  members of this committee serve as liaisons to understand their makeup to inform our efforts to enhance their diversity. 
    Ted - ask the current diverse employees where they came from and how they got their job. 
    Laurie - reminded the group that we as a committee to focus on the structure of our association and our current committees and we can begin to form what the diversity is like at ISAWWA. 

    We need to answer the question - why is it good for the committee to be diverse?   Maybe we find a committee that is diverse and it can serve as an example for other committees.   There is a comfort level of people being on a committee like the leader.  

    Next step - put the finishing touches on the development grid for the committees.
