Classified Staff Council of Bluefield State College Minutes

February 10, 2006

Members Present: Carol Baldwin, Joan Buchanan, Kim Daniels, Tracie Goss, Fred Hardee, Lisa Neel, Jeff Noe, Michele Noe, and Berreda Ratliff.

Chair, Carol Baldwin called the meeting to order at 1:15 in the conference room of the BSC R&D building.

I. Minutes – A motion to accept the meeting minutes for the January 20, 2006 meeting with changes was made and seconded by Hardee/J. Noe, all were in favor.

II. Old Business

A. Policies-Carol questioned the statement in the policy that receipts will not be needed. Berreda stated that she has already submitted a list of suggested changes for this policy.

B. Michele stated that since the last meeting, she had received a call that personnel development had the funds and would be paying for all special fees for employees. This was a good step, but we still need to address the issue for future semesters.

III. New Business- There was no new business to discuss.

IV. Reports

A. Board of Governors- Although Frosty was not in attendance today, it was noted that there would be no new meeting to report on since the last staff council meeting was held the day after the January meeting. Carol did mention that according to the constitution, BOG is required to meet with the staff council at least once per year. It was suggested that this happen in March or April so that the board would have time to address any issues brought to the table before the new fiscal year. March’s meeting will fall during spring break, so we will plan the meeting with the BOG in April.

B. Personnel Development-There was no meeting held to be reported on.

C. ACCE-Fred reported that ACCE had met with legislators. They handed out brochures and spoke with local legislators regarding salary, PEIA, and retirement issues at hand. If anyone wants a copy of the brochure that was handed out, it is available in PDF format at www.wvacce.org. He did note that faculty and classified employees will now have an opportunity to have a voice on the HEPC but only when vacancies arise.

D. Flower Fund-Anita was not able to attend the meeting but sent Carol the report that the balance in the fund is $374.50 and commented that she would appreciate it if

 

everyone would be sure to report when there is an illness or death regarding classified staff that would require flowers being sent. Please do not assume that someone else has made the report. Also, she must have complete information to send flowers, i.e. hospital name and area, street address (no PO Boxes) for home delivery, or funeral home and loved ones name for death in the family. Council discussed sending out a request for donations again.

E. Social Committee-Joan is asked for volunteers for a "Spotlight Office of the Month". She said she would prefer to have a few members of the council on the committee, as well as a few non-members in order to keep things fair. Berreda and Tracie both volunteered from council and a few names were suggested for non council members to be contacted. After much discussion about a food carry in activity, it was decided that the next council meeting be a "Food for Thought" meeting. There will be an all users sent out inviting all classified staff to attend and BYOB (bring your own bag-lunch) and any issues that should be discussed before going to the BOG meeting in April.

F. Wellness Committee- Lisa reported that on March 22 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. Darrell Bailey will be giving a self-defense prevention seminar in the Basic Science Auditorium. Roy is hoping to have an open house to demonstrate the equipment in the weight room. The new water aerobics class has started.
