Debra Short called the meeting to order.
Old Business: None
New Business: Attending members agreed to use Target Cards for the Cougar Awards. Drawings for Cougar Awards will be done twice a month. In order to receive a second award, individuals must have a year between awards. Nominations will go to HR and then be forwarded to Debra. Nominations will be turned face down and Ruth Hendricks will draw the winner/winners.
The committee discussed new ideas for this year. New awards were discussed, but new awards will need to be presented to and approved by the Governance Committee. Members discussed the advantages of presenting awards at different times during the year (Convocation was the favored suggestion) and discussed ways to increase the number of nominations. The lack of nominations is a problem.
Will Sandidge complimented the committee on their achievements for last year.
The meeting was adjourned at 1:50 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Cathy Beale
