President Diane Fuchs opened the meeting noting that she would have to leave early due to a prior engagement and would like to report on Executive Council and consider some of the old business before hearing the treasurer's report and considering new business. Diane noted that the date of the Ice Cream Social last year was August 22. She asked that each person check schedules and report back in the June meeting so that a date can be chosen which will not conflict with other activities. She also asked that we check dates in our October schedules before choosing a date for the Silent Auction and that everyone consider a theme (name) for the auction considering that it will encompass Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas crafts. Diane also asked that we appoint a committee in the June meeting to select recipients for the Honoraria for the fall semester. Diane noted that an election committee needs to be elected/appointed to hold the election in July. These matters were tabled until the next meeting.

Executive Council: Diane Fuchs

258 persons have applied for campus housing in the lodges. Diane also urged everyone to contact Jim Schlinsog for a tour of the housing if you haven't already.

Pennies From Heaven - Regina McCarty

We collected a total of $113.00 in our jars and piggies, plus two contributions that were taken personally to Hosparus. Thanks to Regina McCarty for delivering the pennies to Hosparus. A motion was made and seconded (Lesley Deal/Regina McCarty) to continue to collect pennies during the year for this charity. The motion passed unanimously. Lesley Deal will redistribute the piggies marked with small signs to offices who wish to participate.

Charitable Donation Policy Committee - Lisa Stark, Cynthia Stevenson, Leslie Turner

The committee will meet in the near future to consider this policy. Angela Farnsley volunteered to join the committee and was gladly welcomed.


Gift Certificate Give-Away - Lesley Deal

Ethel King reported that Ernie Gionis didn’t have a discount program that would be appropriate for our needs. Leslie Turner volunteered to check with the Barnes and Noble Bookstore for certificates. The consensus of the Staff Council was that we would like to purchase the certificates from an on-campus site if possible. An associated question arose concerning how many people register for the give-away. It was noted that very few register. A suggestion was made to check with Jenny Wolfe regarding sending a blanket notice to all CL, SM and TE staff each month notifying them that the minutes were available on the website and also promoting SC current activities. Lesley Deal will contact Jenny regarding sending this notice to all staff.

Story Board for Staff Council - Lesley Deal

During the last meeting a suggestion was made to develop a story board poster with the Staff Council mission statement and pertinent information about who we are, our charitable work, and what we do in general. A large version of this poster could be displayed at our events (ice cream social, silent auction, Chancellor=s picnic, etc.). Regina McCarty volunteered to work this up and bring a prototype to the next meeting.

With no further business or announcements, the meeting adjourned at 11:55 a.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Lesley Deal, Secretary
