Classified Staff Council of Bluefield State College Minutes

March 9, 2006

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

Visitor Present: Faye Vint.

Chair, Carol Baldwin called the meeting to order at 12:00 in the Private Dining Room in the Student Center.

I. Minutes – A motion to accept the meeting minutes for the February 10, 2006 meeting with changes was made and seconded by Hardee/J. Noe, all were in favor.

II. Old Business-Frosty stated that he has all of the data for the special committee to compile the salary comparison except for last year’s faculty information. The committee, which is comprised of Frosty, Kim, and Joan, agreed to meet next Monday (March 13).

III. New Business

A. Annual Meeting with the BOG-Carol confirmed with Dr. Walker that we will be meeting with the BOG during the regularly scheduled April meeting on April 20 at 6:00p.m. in the Private Dining Room. There was much discussion about what would be discussed at this meeting with the BOG. Frosty will try to get the information that the special committee compiles about salary comparisons to Anita Barilla to have it put on the agenda and in the booklet that is handed out to attendees. Other items, besides the salary schedule, that Frosty feels needs to be addressed include the bumping policy and personnel development budget.

B. Classified employees of the year-Carol explained that Dr. Walker has asked for staff council to vote on and submit the names of the classified staff exempt and non-exempt employees of the year. Due to time constraints, council agreed to the following for this year with changes being made for next year: Each sectors representative is to nominate two employees that fall in their sector (lists of members in their sector will be emailed to them immediately) and all members will vote at the next meeting for one from the exempt category and one from the non-exempt category from the nominations. Representatives are welcomed to determine their nominations however they choose, including soliciting suggestions if desired.

C. It was suggested that a statewide classified staff council retreat could be beneficial to all schools that would be willing to participate. Fred said he will mention the idea at the next ACCE meeting. A motion was made and seconded by Akers/Buchanan to also draft a letter to all College’s and University’s staff councils requesting input on the feasibility and interest in such a retreat, all were in favor.

IV. Reports

A. Board of Governors-There was no report on the February meeting because no one on the council attended.

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

C. ACCE-Fred said that ACCE had a meeting with WVU concerning Senate Bill 549. Based on the number of employees WVU has, this bill would separate WVU from the ACCE group. The argument against this is that, although WVU represents more employees, all other members of ACCE are represented by 90% of the legislators. ACCE will be meeting with the legislators at the Capitol on March 10. Fred will report on that at the next meeting.

D. Flower Fund-Anita sent Carol a report that there is $374.50 in the flower fund.

E. Social Committee-Joan has scheduled a meeting of the committee next week to discuss implementing the "Spotlight Office of the Month".

F. Wellness Committee-Joan wanted to thank Lisa for being such a good liaison between the council and the committee. Lisa reminded everyone of the Self Defense seminar on March 22 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The committee is looking into possibly offering a 6 week women’s self defense class. Lisa said that the Health Fair will be held on April 20 in the Gym from 10:00-1:00. There is also discussion about setting up a scrap-booking workshop.

V. Next meeting/Adjournment

The next meeting will be held on April 11, 2006 at 12:00 p.m. in the Private Dining Room of the Harris Jefferson Student Center.

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