January 20, 2006

Members Present: Rick Akers, Carol Baldwin, Joan Buchanan, Daniel "Frosty" Frost, Tracie Goss, Fred Hardee, Lisa Neel, Jeff Noe, Michele Noe, Berreda Ratliff, and Joanna Thompson.

Chair, Carol Baldwin called the meeting to order at 2:00 in the dining hall of the Upperclassman II.

I. Minutes – A motion to accept the meeting minutes for the December 14, 2005 meeting with changes was made and seconded by Akers/Hardee, all were in favor.

II. Old Business-There was no old business to be discussed.

III. New Business- Professional Development money-Michele brought to the table the issue that personnel development is only paying for credit hours and the college is no longer waiving special fees such as lab fees, business accreditation fees, and CART fees. A motion that staff council write a recommendation to the Personnel Development Committee that fees be included in payment for classes was made and seconded by Goss/Hardee, all were in favor.

IV. Reports

A. Board of Governors- Frosty reported that the audit report was distributed in last nights BOG meeting. He stated that it showed that BSC made $2.3 million dollars last year. He stated that he felt that monies should be set aside to fund the current salary schedule. He stated that beginning next year; faculty will be receiving increment pay. He wanted to go on record as commending the Business Office personnel for their hard work in preparing the information for the audit report. He then discussed many of the proposed policy changes such as the holiday schedule, salary schedule, and travel reimbursement. He suggested that all classified staff members look closely at the proposed changes when they are distributed and contact David Lord with any comments they might have regarding these changes.

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

C. ACCE-Fred reported that the last ACCE meeting was held in Charleston. They are still working on brochure to educate legislators on important issues such as the PEIA proposed 80/20 premium increase. He said that the public teachers have really rallied around this issue and that the more opposition that is shown by those affected the better chance we will have for this issue to be reevaluated.

 

D. Flower Fund-Anita was not able to attend the meeting and Carol was not aware if the balance in the flower fund account had changed from last month’s balance of $444.50.

E. Social/Activities Committee-Joan is asking for suggestions for a spring event. If anyone has suggestions, please contact her. Michele asked about previous discussions in council meetings regarding starting a "Spotlight Office of the Month" where offices are chosen randomly and their staff and services are spotlighted for the college community to learn more about them. Jane Richardson had once mentioned that Walmart might be willing to contribute donuts to be given to the office chosen. Joan will check into this further. Some members of the committee asked if we could request a phone list by department.

F. Wellness Committee- Lisa reported that the new treadmills are in. Roy is hoping to have an open house to advertise the equipment in the weight room. There is a new water aerobics class starting Mondays from 4:15-5:15 p.m. that will be open to students, staff, and faculty. Roy has not been able to find a yoga teacher. The health clinic will begin offering blood pressure and blood sugar testing later in the semester. The committee is looking into trying to get a self defense class started. Roy has the information on the 100 miles/100 days walking or 20 miles/100 days swimming programs that he will be distributing to anyone interested. The wellness newsletter will go out next week. Roy is looking to try to start a Line Dancing class. The question was posed as to if any of these classes could be offered during the work day for people who wish to utilize their wellness hours. Lisa said she would look into this. She said that the next Lunch to Learn will be held on January 25.

V. Next meeting/Adjournment

The date and time for the next meeting has not been set, but it was suggested that it be held Thursday or Friday of the second or third week of February at the Foundation office building downtown.

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