Classified Staff Council of Bluefield State College Minutes

April 19, 2007

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

Chair, Carol Baldwin called the meeting to order at 2:00 p.m. in the Conference Room in Basic Science.

Before the meeting, the new Human Resources Director, Leah Taylor took a few minutes to meet with the council. She started by telling us some things she hopes to do in this position. She stated that she hopes to become an advocate for the classified staff, someone whom the staff feels comfortable with coming to with issues. She stated that if anyone has issues they would like to discuss with her, they can call her to set up a time and place to meet. She noted that she will be happy to meet with employees outside of her office when necessary. She also asked if there were any things that the council would like to see her do. Our biggest concerns were confidentiality and the feeling of feeling free to come to her with issues.

I. Minutes – A motion to accept the meeting minutes for the March 23, 2006 meeting with changes was made and seconded by Neel/Noe, all were in favor.

II. Old Business- All Classified Meeting- Carol voiced her concern for the lack of interest and attendance at the meeting. We often hear of discontent within the classified employees about policies and decisions that are made in staff council, but when we hold these meetings, no one will come to give their opinions about key issues. There was discussion during this meeting that we hope to invite Dr. Walker to the September or October meeting so as to get a legislative update at that time.

III. New Business-

A. Classified Employees of the Year-Council went into executive session at this time.

B. Classified Emeritus-Executive session ended once voting was over. At the last meeting, Michele made a suggestion that we ask the administration to erect a "Wall of Fame" somewhere on campus that we could display all winners of major awards here on campus (i.e. employees of the year, emeritus, etc.). Carol stated that we will work on addressing this with the president before the next meeting.

C. Elections-Joan will mail a list of all classified employees broken down by category and ask for nominations by Friday, April 13. The ballots will then go out in campus mail April 20 and must be returned by 4:00 p.m. on April 30. Kim, Carol, Rick, and Joan will tally the votes.

IV. Reports-

A. Board of Governors-Frosty stated that the policy had come out of HEPC and that pay raises would not take effect until October 1. He is going to request full funding of the salary schedule at tonight’s meeting. He asked anyone who is able to attend tonight’s meeting.

B. Personnel Development-Lisa stated that the committee will meet next week to vote on applications for summer and fall.

C. ACCE-The representative was not present at this time to give his report.

D. Flower Fund-Carol had not received a report as of this time.

E. Social Activities Committee-Joan suggested starting a newsletter for classified employees. Everyone agreed that would be a good idea and will look at initiating it with the new council.

F. Wellness Committee-Lisa stated that the Water Aerobics is still going on. The Health Fair will be April 26 from 10-2.

V. Next meeting/Adjournment

The next meeting will be held on May 17, 2007 at 2 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.
