CORRESPONDENCE

Ryan Girvin sent an email thanking the Staff Council for offering the New Employees' Reception. Eight of 12 new employees attended the reception. Connie Schnieders sent an email thanking the Staff Council for her honorarium. Several staff members also sent emails to the Staff Council email box thanking SC for their winter treats.

OLD BUSINESS 

A question was posed to the Council as to the rationale for the employee name only being printed on insurance cards. Is this an IU decision or a local decision? It was noted that in some situations, having only the staff person’s name on the card was embarrassing and awkward for spouses/partners. Steven Clark on behalf of the Staff Council Personnel Affairs Committee will contact Human Resources regarding these questions. This matter was tabled until the next meeting due to the lack of a quorum.

Another issue raised regarded the Staff Council approaching TARC to ask for possible discounts on bus fares for IU staff/students. Alice Watson will contact Melissa Hill, who handles the list of businesses who give student/staff discounts, for information. This matter was tabled until the next meeting due to the lack of a quorum.

NEW BUSINESS

No new business was conducted due to lack of a quorum.

OTHER ITEMS:

Announcements
The winner of the BNCB gift card for reading the January minutes is Cynthia Stevenson.

In order to find a better time for SC meetings, President Watson will be sending an email to Staff Council members to vote for or against meeting on the Third Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. instead of the third Tuesday. Please vote.

Two new discounts offered:
1. IU Football Tickets-Check SC discount page for details.
2. Chase Bank–Check SC discount page for an attached brochure. 

With no further business or announcements, the meeting was adjourned at 11:15 a.m. 

Respectfully submitted,
Lesley Deal, Secretary
