Classified Staff Council of Bluefield State College Minutes

May 17, 2007

Members Present: Rick Akers, Carol Baldwin, Joan Buchanan, Kim Daniels, Tracy Goss, Deirdre Guyton, Fred Hardee, and Michele Noe.

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 April 19, 2006 meeting with changes was made and seconded by Akers/Hardee, all were in favor.

II. Old Business

A. Employee of the Year-Carol thanked everyone for voting her classified exempt employee of the year.

B. Classified Emeritus-Carol explained that although we had voted to give the two sisters emeritus this year, only one was given the award because the other had already been awarded. It was noted that most of the winners were not present at the ceremony, and Kim stated that she had been made aware that this might have been because they were never notified. The question was raised as to who is responsible for notifying the winners. Another question that was raised was if there is a limit on how many people can receive this designation within one year (noted that faculty awarded quite a few this time). Carol stated that as far as she is aware there is no limit; but that they usually request two persons be selected from classified employees. These are some things that need to be addressed before next year’s ceremony.

C. Elections-Carol reviewed the results of the elections. Next terms council will consist of BOG Rep.-Daniel "Frosty" Frost, ACCE Rep.-Fred Hardee, Council Chair-Lisa Neel, Service/Maintenance/Skilled Crafts Sector-James Crenshaw and Stewart Odle, Clerical/Secretarial Sector-Michele Noe and Vonda Wilson, Professional/Non-Faculty Sector-Carol Baldwin and Tom Harrison, Executive/Administrative/Managerial Sector-Deirdre Guyton and Jane Richardson, and Technical/Paraprofessional Sector-Anita Barilla and Lori Dials. These terms will take effect July 1, 2007 and run for two years.

III. New Business-

A. Wall of Fame-Carol reminded everyone of Michele’s idea mentioned at the last staff council meeting about requesting a "Wall of Fame" be established to recognize staff and faculty employee awards, i.e. employee of the year and emeritus. Carol noted that she and Michele had made an appointment to meet with President Walker to discuss this idea, but that he was not able to attend that meeting. He did, however, speak with Carol after the employee recognition luncheon and told her that if we would do all of the research on where we would want it, what exactly it would consist of, and how much money it would cost, he would find the money to make it happen. Michele stated that she had talked to Leah Taylor (HR Director) in order to get some input on what other areas, besides


classified staff, should be involved. Council members were asked to do some looking around and talking with their constituents about what and where, and we would discuss this further at the next meeting.

B. Holiday Schedule-Carol stated that she had contacted Anita Barilla a few months ago requesting a copy of the HEPC holiday schedule as soon as it comes out. She has not yet received this and is unable to reach Anita at this time to follow-up on it’s status.

IV. Reports-

A. Board of Governors-Frosty stated that the board had voted to give classified employees 20.82% of the gap in funding and $675 to faculty and non-classified staff. He stated that this will be revisited after October 1 when they have a final count of students enrolled.

B. Personnel Development-There was no representative present to give this report.

C. ACCE-Fred stated that he will be attending a "Fair Labor Standards" workshop sponsored by ACCE in June. He also stated that there was a big turnover in ACCE representatives throughout the state.

D. Flower Fund-Anita reported to Carol that the balance is currently $416.00.

E. Social Activities Committee-The representative was not present at this time to give a report.

F. Wellness Committee-There was no representative present to give this report.

V. Next meeting/Adjournment

The next meeting will be held on June 21, 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.
