5. Old Business
We still have some open positions to fill on Governance Committees. Please let Sarah know if you are able to step up and volunteer for one.
We still have an opening for our Recorder for the PTSA. Any volunteers?
Don’t forget to apply for Professional Development funds. This includes professional organization memberships, conferences, etc. Be sure and read emails from “Professional Development” to stay in the loop on deadlines and opportunities.
Interested in attending New Horizons? Deadline to register is February 16. See email from Dr. Capps. Visit newhorizons.vccs.edu to see if you think it would be relevant for you. Registrations will be paid by CVCC. Alison Moore, Professional Development Coordinator has a streamlined form for this conference as well.
Great ideas to make CVCC better
6. New Business
- Any new suggestions?
- Update—Blackboard Collaborate didn’t happen for Spring Convocation. Would you use it? Sarah is going to get the tapings accessible through the Bulletin.
- Be sure and complete the survey about the mini-Convocation that is in the works for those who can’t attend the one before school starts
Do we want to pull together a fundraiser or service project this semester?
Yes, we would like to plan a pizza sale in March or April. Wednesday would be the best day of the week for our members. Sarah will contact Deanne re: Student Center and Al with Vito’s Pizza.
What’s what at CVCC: Share what your office does and what others on campus need to know.
