Classified Staff Council of Bluefield State College Minutes

December 7, 2006

Members Present: Rick Akers, Carol Baldwin, Joan Buchanan, Kim Daniels, Daniel Frost, Fred Hardee, Lisa Neel, Michele Noe, and Berreda Ratliff.

Chair, Carol Baldwin called the meeting to order at 12:00 at Ryan’s Family Steakhouse in Bluefield, VA.

I. Minutes – A motion to accept the meeting minutes for the November 9, 2006 meeting with changes was made and seconded by Hardee/Akers, all were in favor.

II. Old Business

A. Constitution-Carol noted that she had been in contact with Bruce Walker about how legislation would effect the changing of the constitution with regards to replacement of council members, etc. It was his opinion that there is no legislation that would dictate what changes could be made in this issue. The council made changes to the draft constitution from the previous council’s term per previous discussions. A motion to go forward with the draft constitution with changes was made and seconded by Akers/Hardee. After some discussion, it was agreed that the best way to proceed with gaining approval from all classified members was to email a copy of the draft constitution to all users and ask for a return vote of approval/denial to be mailed back to the chair. For those classified staff members who do not have email addresses, one would be sent through campus mail.

III. New Business-There was no new business on the agenda.

IV. Reports

A. Board of Governors- There was no meeting to be reported on. Frosty advised the council that he will be asking the board to approve next years pay raises effective July 1 instead of having to wait until December.

B. Personnel Development- Lisa stated that they had approved all applications that had been submitted. They were informed that because of cuts in the institution’s Title III funding, their budget had been cut in half (although they are still not aware of what the budget was to begin with or what it is now).

C. ACCE-Fred said that they had a meeting in Morgantown. They have made a presentation to HEPC and are planning a presentation to LOCIA. Some problems arose with the surveys sent out statewide. The representative from Marshall will be reviewing them. Once again he encouraged every employee

 

to contact their legislators. ACCE is voicing their concerns to PEIA because there are no general meetings held in this area.

D. Flower Fund-Carol has not heard the current balance on the flower fund, but is aware that funds are low. She will be using the flyer that was used in the past and sending it out after Christmas to solicit funds.

E. Social Committee-Joan was asking for suggestions for a spring event. She will be working on an event for the spring and welcomes ideas and volunteers to help with planning.

F. Wellness Committee- Lisa stated that the Biggest Loser program will start again in January. The water aerobics will also begin again on January 17 and meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-5 p.m.

V. Next meeting/Adjournment

The next meeting will be held on January 18, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. in the conference room on the ground floor of Basic Science.

With no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned by Carol.
