Old Business
Connie reported that all recipients of the recent Cougar awards were pleasantly surprised that another CVCC employee thought enough of their work to take time to nominate them.  They received a $25 Wal-Mart gift card and a Cougar Recognition Award certificate, presented by Connie. 

Deadline for nominations to be received for the Employee Recognition Awards (other than the Outstanding Faculty Award) is Friday, March 15th.  There were some corrections that needed to be made to the explanation page for the Outstanding Faculty Award to make it more generic.  A work order has been sent to Wil Perez asking him to make the changes on the web page.  Once this has been completed, Connie will send the email to “everyone” on nominations for Outstanding Faculty.
Also, Connie reported that she had spoken with Dr. Peter Dorman about the suggestion made by Dr. Tim Rhoads to add another category to the Outstanding Faculty Award nomination form addressing the nominated faculty’s committee participation. Peter met with Wil Sandidge and concluded that Tim’s suggestion is a good one, but this should all fall under the service to the college category.  The ERC will be responsible for reviewing the committee participation for each candidate.
Leticia will email the ERC all new nominations received for March’s Cougar award by next Tuesday, March 4. The committee will review and vote by email.

New Business
Leticia reported that the Spring Luncheon will be held on Thursday, May 8.  The Employee Recognition Awards will be presented during the luncheon. Leticia will confirm with Dr. Capps that the Spring Luncheon is the appropriate event to present the ERC awards. The Outstanding Faculty Award will be given during Graduation.
Leticia said she had received a few nominations, but not many. Liz Boothe suggested that if we do not get several nominations for the awards that Leticia might consider emailing an employee listing by job classifications to “everyone” like she did last year. This seemed to help increase the nominations.

It was agreed to ask Wil Perez to add the words, “A recipient would not be eligible again for five years after receiving the ___________ Award” under the Eligibility section of each award on their web page.
Connie thanked all of the committee members attending for their participation and hard work.

Meeting Adjourned:  1:28pm
