1. Approve July 17, 2009 Minutes

Approved.

2. Actions of the EC since the last meeting

These recommendations were made via email since the last EC meeting:

3. Questions

Several personnel issues were discussed.

Paula doesn't have much information about the budget. Her understanding is that the taxes will be about the same as last year. The Provost has stated, "Our campus cannot accommodate any growth in the number of employees; in fact, we need to become smaller over time. In order to achieve this, when an employee leaves and a vacancy exists, the position may very well not be refilled.  This is an opportunity to reassess and redistribute the work rather than refilling."

TOP is still a possibility. Although, we do not know how easily these will be filled.

It was noted that the Government Information Service Team report should have been on this agenda, and will be put on the next one.  Beth Woodard requested that the Executive Committee at least approve the suggested name so that changes for fall marketing can be made.  The group agreed to this suggestion.

4. PRC for two full professor candidates

Names were suggested.

5. Flow chart for NSM Decision Process - JoAnn

This will be discussed at the next meeting.

6. Coordinator of Library Assessment

A screening committee was suggested. Paula will contact the members to serve.

7. Replace a person on Staff Development and Training Committee

A name was suggested. Paula will contact the person to serve.

8. IT Decision-making WG

This document will be posted with the vision statement for input from faculty and staff.

9. Title change

A call will go out regarding the changes and ask for input from faculty.
