COMMITTEE REPORTS

Blue Ribbon Committee - Regina McCarty

Regina McCarty reported that the committee is meeting and has divided into Professional Staff/Staff and Faculty groups to consider questions regarding salary separately.  Recommendations will be made by the groups by March 15, 2008. 

CBAG Meeting and Campus Executive Council (CEC) Meeting Reports - Diane Fuchs

It is being recommended that personally owned space heaters be removed from work spaces if they do not have a kill switch due to safety issues.  Mail Services is considering a change to 1 pick-up/delivery per day probably in the afternoon due to increased mail from housing beginning in the Fall 2008 semester.  I. P. phones will be installed campus-wide (at least one in each office) this year, to warn in case of emergency and issue weather alerts/closings.  108 students have applied for housing and placed deposits thus far.

Illness/Funeral/Condolence Policy Committee

President Diane Fuchs opened the dialog by asking the committee (Alice Watson, Regina Mc Carty and Kim Wells) to report on their progress.  A question was raised about sending some type of acknowledgement to Professional Staff members in the event of a death or illness.  Due to the fact that Professional Staff did not want to be included in Staff Council and the difficulty of our being notified of the death or illness of a Professional Staff member, the consensus of the Staff Council members was that we should not.  The policy, drawn up by the committee, was handed out for Staff Council members to look over before a vote in the March Staff Council meeting.  If any member did not receive a copy of the policy and would like to have one, please contact Lesley Deal

OLD BUSINESS

Spring Treat

A committee was appointed to purchase supplies and assemble a spring treat for each staff member.  The theme this year will be "Spring Break."  Regina McCarty and Lisa Stark volunteered for the committee.  Treat packages will be assembled during and delivered after the March Staff Council Meeting.

NEW BUSINESS

Sunshine Basket - Gifts for a "Sunshine Basket" for Kim Draughn, who was injured in an auto accident, are being collected.  If you wish to contribute, please take your gift to Diane Fuchs by Wednesday, February 27th.  Thanks to those who have already contributed.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Buffalo Madison Coffee Giveaway winner for February is Mary Beth Nanz.

With no further business, the meeting adjourned at 10:58 a.m. to enjoy finger-food treats.

Respectfully submitted,

Lesley Deal, Secretary
