1. The meeting was called to order at 3:00 p.m. in Chappell Hall 113.
2. Minutes from the previous meeting were approved unanimously.
3. Treasurer Report:
Toi Franks reported that there is currently a balance of $6669.74 in the State Funded Account. The $1,000.00 that was being held in reserve has been added back to the current balance for this account. The Foundation Account total is $2,598.76. A discussion about how to utilize end of the year funds was deliberated and the final determination was to utilize these funds during Staff Appreciation Week. The funds would be used for a workshop type event that would be focused around personal finances and budgeting. Inviting a big name person like Dave Ramsey or Howard Clark would not only be great publicity for Staff Council but would also benefit the staff greatly.
