I could go for (in order of preference):

* Google Analytics
* Unit and department web and database hosting needs (it would be great 
to invite some OIT service providers / strategic planners to such a mtg.)
* 2009 university web templates - we're nearing the end of their first 
year of adoption; who's using them and what have we learned?
