Classified Staff Council of Bluefield State College Minutes

April 11, 2006

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

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 March 9, 2006 meeting was made and seconded by Akers/Hardee, all were in favor.

II. Old Business

A. Annual meeting with BOG- Carol will be the spokesperson for this meeting. Several suggestions were made as to what should be presented at this meeting. Carol made a list of all the things that the council has accomplished as well as a few concerns to be brought to the board.

B. Classified employees of the year- There was much discussion about what criteria should be used for the selection of the nominations. Some suggestions included: length of service, loyalty, dependability, ability to work with others, communication, ability to work with students, knowledge about everything BSC, and Esprit De Corps. Council went into closed session to vote by secret ballot for who would be nominated for this honor. Once out of closed session, everyone agreed that the process for nomination and criteria for next year would be brought up for discussion at the next all campus classified meeting.

III. New Business-Kim was asked to present the possibility of Liberty Mutual offering auto and home insurance to employees of BSC at a discounted rate. The general consensus of the council members was that we would be interested in hearing more about what they had to offer.

IV. Reports

A. Board of Governors-Frosty advised the council that there will be a special meeting of the board tomorrow to discuss tuition and fees. There has not been a March meeting held yet, that is the one we will be attending.

B. Personnel Development- Lisa reported that there was no meeting held to be reported on. Personnel Development requests for the summer and fall are due April 21. The committee will meet the week before finals to vote on fund awards.

 

C. ACCE-Fred said that they met last week. They have a leadership conference every two years. ACCE is now discussing the fact that when an employee retires, they can exchange accumulated sick leave for continued health insurance premiums. The problem is that if the employee dies, the surviving family members on the policy do not get to continue on with unused premiums paid. Fred also said that HB 549 is now a dead issue in the senate, but that it did cause them to loose their representation on HEPC.

D. Flower Fund-Anita did not send a report to Carol. Carol did want to note that fund raising flyers have gone out to all classified staff.

E. Social Committee-Joan had to leave the meeting before it ended so Carol said that the committee is still working on implementing the "Spotlight Office of the Month" program.

F. Wellness Committee- Lisa reminded everyone of the Health Fair on April 20 in the Gym from 10:00-1:00.

V. Next meeting/Adjournment

The next meeting will be held on May 18, 2006 at 1:00 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.
