Goals 2015 – 2016
- Salary Survey: the organization requested that ED request a salary survey from the administration. Linda Daye discussed the HR policy for updating the EWP.
- The standardization of approaches to the EWP; there seems to be some confusion regarding the inclusion of goals on the EWP and what their function is.
- Use of Funds from a Fundraiser: Discussion about the Classified Staff Association’s potential donation to the emergency fund for students. Lauren also mentioned the lack of funding the VPT testing as a good use of funds. M. Farris and R. Hendrick are hoping to develop a way to fund the students who need to take the test to get into developmental classes – this is another option that Classified Staff may consider funding. Other suggestions would be welcome.
New Fundraising Ideas: Masquerade Jewelry Sales, or, Doughnut Sales
Connie reports that the account for the Classified Staff is at BB&T, Linda and Ed will need to go to the bank to have names changed on the account.
Discussion of increased attendance at Classified Staff Association. The point was made that if we are taking up issues of interest to staff, like Professional Development Funding and Salaries, then staff may be more inclined to attend the meetings. Other issued discussed were the morale of staff regarding salary and benefit issues and use.
Lauren will be developing a survey to ask Classified Staff to come to an open meeting to discuss issues,
Motion to adjourn, Linda Daye, second from Debra Short.
Meeting adjourned at 1:57 pm
