Donna reported that she is still waiting to hear from Sally Emery regarding the details. Classified Week (May 17-21, 2010) – Recap of major points from last meeting. Donna noted the need to have a balance of personal enrichment and professional development workshops. A survey will be sent out for staff to select what they would like to be offered. There was a brief discussion about the format of such survey and the consensus was that the workshops/activities suggested at the October meeting be included along with an “other” option. In addition, the survey would also include a “call for presenters” statement/option. The group also reviewed and updated the sub-committees. Subsequent meetings will be broken down into 2 sessions. Sub-committees will meet for half hour and then report to group at the second half hour. Sub-committee rosters include: Workshops Vicki De La Torre Beverly Gilmore Jimmy Macareno Anita Martinez Allene Quarles Carolee Vakil-Jessop Team Building Event Caroline Biedler Linda Detwiler Nina Oshio Cheryl Peacock Luukia Smith Debbie Turano Representatives from the Compton Center staff will be invited to attend future meetings so that they will keep the center informed.
