CGC Consent Agenda Items:
Professional Achievement Bonus for Classified Staff
Linda Daye, president of the Classified Staff Association, presented a proposal approved by the Employee Recognition Committee, to award classified staff members a one-time bonus for professional achievements. The proposal produced lots of discussion, suggestions, and concerns as to where to find the funding for the bonus. Linda stated she will take the suggested changes (remove job related, create option for days off or bonus, add certification to include it in the certificate bonus, and bonus must be applied for by April 15) back to the Classified Staff for their approval.
Provide Free Microsoft Office 365 to Students
Corinne Hoisington requested to provide Microsoft Office 365 free to all students beginning in the spring 2014 semester. She stated currently students are charged $80 for the software.
John McCullough made a motion to approve this request.
The motion carried unanimously.
Ernie stated the Committee on Committees had noticed that several committees were not posting their meeting minutes on Communication Central. It was recommended that the committee chairs remind their recorders to post the minutes in a timely manner, and if assistance was needed, to please call Wil Perez in IT.
