Meeting called to order at 3:05.


Approval of the minutes will be postponed due to the lack of quorum.


The treasurer is not present to give a report.


There is concern that campus (including delegates) are unaware of meetings, possibly due to not being subscribed to the meetings-minutes email list. It is suggested to email delegates along with the meeting/minutes list serve.


Committee Reports:


Email options were discussed.

President discussed the upcoming changes to the strategic directions.

Mission statement and vision statement were reviewed.



No one is present to report.


FY12 University Senate Positions: Jen is researching with Christine Zuger regarding the delegates appointed to university committees. Jen will email further information as she receives it.


Staff Development:

The SkillPath seminars went really well during Staff Appreciation Week.

Suggestion: to look into SkillPath webinars that would allow more people to virtually attend the workshop.



No report.



There is a proposal to edit the bylaws but since there is no quorum, this will be discussed again next month.


Special Projects: Staff Appreciation Week

Lots of positive feedback for the breakfast and the workshops.

Jen is developing a survey that will be sent out to all staff that will help to gauge how staff felt about the week.

Next year there will be sign-up sheets for all delegates to engage in the activities for Staff Appreciation week.

Jen expressed her concerns for the lack of delegates at the events during Appreciation week.


Sustainability Council:

No report.


Executive Committee:

Wrapping things up for the year. Jen will be asking each committee chair to send her a report of the year at a glance.


No old business.


New business:

The Staff Council Retreat is coming up soon. Jen will ask for people who want to serve on a committee to help plan the event.


Adjournment of the meeting at 3:32.

Next month the meeting will be May 19th in Chappell Hall 113.
