Last meeting featured Dr. John Capps as our special guest
- Any takeaways or discussion?
All enjoyed the conversation and discussion. One key takeaway is to feel free to call our President John, instead of Dr. Capps. He would prefer it.

President’s Cabinet: had discussed plan to shift the phone system starting with full-time faculty. Creating an alumni sticker for graduates’ cars which would also increase publicity, plans for the Foundation luncheon, Great Colleges to work for survey. Since this survey does not include part-time staff by design (from Chronical of Higher Education) Kris Ogden has offered to create a similar survey for part-time staff to gauge their employee satisfaction as well.
: DC trip and spring events were cancelled.
Cupcake and Sweets day was cancelled. Employee Recognition Awards are still being done and forms are available on Communique.
Off-site events have been cancelled, including New Horizons. Since PD is a valid use of paid time (with supervisor approval), it may also be possible to do things that require funding. Complete paperwork and submit as usual if you find something. Also, many free things are available through the Virginia Learning Center. See email from John Capps on Monday, March 23, 2020 for more details.

Any Ideas for building Community that the PTSA can do during this time of Remote Work
We are going to try offering an informal and optional “coffee hour” to let members connect and share tips for remote efforts via Zoom. This may be each week or every two weeks, depending on interest.
One topic to share will be how to set up Zoom meetings and any implementation tips. We already learned a few during our first effort at a Zoom group meeting today!
