Chair, Carol Baldwin called the meeting to order at 2:00 p.m. in the Conference Room in Basic Science.
I. Minutes – A motion to accept the meeting minutes for the May 17, 2007 meeting with changes was made and seconded by Neel/Noe, all were in favor.
II. Old Business
A. Wall of Fame-Michele went over what had been discussed at the last meeting and asked the members of the new council to be thinking about it so that we can address it at the next meeting.
III. New Business-
A. Holiday Schedule-Carol handed out the Holiday Schedule for state employees that had been distributed by HEPC. She advised the group that there were certain days that would have to be taken at the times they are scheduled (i.e. 4th of July, Labor day, Thanksgiving and the day after, Christmas and New Years Eve and holidays, Martin Luther King day, and Memorial day) the remaining days would be open for discussion. She noted that the governor has given ½ days for Christmas and New Years. After much discussion, it was proposed that we take the remaining five days as follows: 1 day being split in half to take the remaining time on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve off, 3 days after Christmas, and the Friday of spring break (March 21) off. As always, we proposed two alternate days off in the case that the governor would decide to give holidays in addition to the ones on this holiday schedule on a day that we already had scheduled off. The first alternate day would be Friday, May 23, 2007 (before Memorial day holiday) and the second would be Friday, June 20, 2007 (WV Day). A motion to submit the proposed schedule to Dr. Walker for approval was made and seconded by Noe/Akers, all were in favor.
A. Board of Governors-Frosty stated the board had voted on the renewal of Dr. Walker’s contract. He stated that the vote was split, and that board chair Norris Kantor cast the deciding vote to renew the contract for two years. He stated that WVU’s Classified Staff had won their suit regarding the zero step funding of the salary schedule. At this time, there was discussion about issues that the incoming
council would like to try to address. Frosty then went over items for tonight’s BOG meeting agenda. Items included were: A Memorandum of Agreement between BSC and NRCTC, faculty merit pay, the financial report (official budget), and enrollment.
Due to time restrictions, the meeting was adjourned at this time, with no further reports being given.
V. Next meeting/Adjournment
The next meeting time and place will be announced by the new chair, Lisa Neel, as soon as it can be scheduled.
With no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned by Carol.
