(last 30 minutes of the meeting) Planning for PDD is going well. The Theme for the day is “Communication College Wide” Various titles for the day have been discussed. “Listen Up: Communicate & Collaborate” was chosen Three (3) workshops are planned: Crucial Conversations facilitated by Carolyn McMorran, Penny Villegas & Celine Kavalec- Miller will present on Conflict Transformation, & Katie Shephard will present on Public Speaking (Still trying to come up with a name for that one) Shelby is working on a program booklet Decorations & little gifts for the event were discussed Pens and totes are being supplied by the bookstore Keith and Mariann will staff the registration table How to best advertise the day were discussed. Some ideas were: Leadership VCC, place in the bulletin, Dr. Stone sends an email inviting to all to attend, supervisors are to encourage Professional staff to attend. Perhaps a follow up email after RSVP to encourage greater attendance. An Out-Look invitation sent (some thought no, it’s just too easy to click yes….and not come) smoke signals and carrier pigeons were also mentioned. FOOD: Keith and Johnny looking into this. Charity: Second harvest Food-bank / food drop off, no attendance by organization PSLT Mission Statement & Vision Statement Mission Statement Stays the same Matrix status update *More time off as years on staff accrue. (Career service and Professional staff) The 15 and 20 year mark were discussed. (pending) * Unused vacation time compensated financially instead of rolling over to sick time (perhaps a personal choice?) Much discussion…pending * Bereavement leave..at present none, suggest five (5) days be allotted, should include in-laws * The compensation discrepancy between new hires and existing staff was discussed. New hires come in too close to those who have been with the college a longtime. * Midpoint raise discussed. Needs t be ramped back up, hasn’t been done in seven (7) years! * Recognition of Professional staff. Suggested that @ the five (5) and ten (10) year mark. Exactly what to do ….pending * Higher One debit card discussed. Great idea. ATMs on every campus for usage. Much discussion on the Vision Statement: Do we do what we say we do? It was decided to remove Scholarship and make sure we do outreach The meeting was adjourned @ 4:00 P.M.
