The meeting was called to order by new chair Marcia Tackett. Roll Call lists 12 members in attendance. Minutes from the April 20th meeting were reviewed. Motion to accept made by Kathy Kratzenberg. Second by Lori Perry. Motion carried.
Announcements/Remarks from Chair/Executive Board Report: Marcia asked for a volunteer to attend the June meeting with Dr. Morris. Lori Perry volunteered. The meeting is typically the second Thursday each month, but June’s meeting will need to be rescheduled. June 17th was a date that Lori and Kathy and Marcia agreed they could all meet. These meetings have been helpful in establishing a good rapport with the president and she is happy to meet new people each month.
In announcements from the USA Floor, the question was raised about the retirement incentive being offered to administration and ATSS. Kathy brought in a copy of the proposal and a discussion ensued about the policy.
Kathy Kratzenberg gave an update of the process being followed leading up to the fall contract negotiations as part of her CWA update.
Election Committee: Still seeking nominations but should have everything ready for vote soon.
Newsletter Committee: No report. Always gathering information.
Spirit Committee: They are planning another picnic – some time in early July.
University Wide Committees – no reports available.
Unfinished Business: Marcia made note that one of the tasks USA agreed to take on this year was making a proposal to rework the employee evaluation form. This was supposed to take place once the Advanced Connections training was completed so information/experience gained from that training could inform the evaluation process. She felt that the training wasn’t as helpful as it could have been. There was some discussion about the usefulness of the training and whether or not it should be used as background for changing the evaluation form. No decisions were made at this time.
There being no new business, the meeting adjourned.
