Thurs Apr 21st, 4-4:30pm, Kansas Rm: Gov. Sebelius will be there for the signing of the SB74. All of CCEB asked to be there (paid time).
The SDC page is now public and has our events calendar on it. This shows all of the upcoming events in a blog-type format that is searchable by date and keyword. Please give us feedback on this or the web page.
After consultation with LFA exec and CCEB, the SDC will meet with a facilitator on May 4th to discuss creating recommendations for next year's CCEB and LFA exec regarding the structure and purpose of the SDC. This year was a "test" year because we added several IS (Information Services) representatives to the mix at the request of administration.
We do have several upcoming programs, so please see the calendar on our web site (http://www.lib.ku.edu/sdc/). We are focusing on having more programs available, but a lot of our attention has been on the changes forthcoming with this committee. As always, if there are any questions, please let Jeff McAdams or another SDC member know.
See email sent to all staff.
I do remember we spent time getting ourselves organized for next year (starts in May!) Most of the same folks continue in the same capacity as last year, including Mike as chair of Information Access and Public Relations (I think that's what the initials IAPR stand for). Mike is also serving on the Academic Computing and Telecommunications university committee. I got elected as EEO4 rep to the Executive Board so I'll get to attend those meetings as well as the full Senate meetings and I will continue my service on the CS Personnel Committee.
There was a round of applause regarding the passage and signing of SB74 and appreciations made to those who served on the "working committee" to remove KU Classified Staff from the civil service regime. If we don't get the Regents approval to proceed with becoming university employees before summer, we'll be waiting until after summer since the Regents don't meet often in the summer. Once we are officially separated from civil service, CS legislative activities will shift focus to support overall University initiatives. Meanwhile the "working committee" is reviewing our new appeals processes.
There's some year-end money we need to get spent. We might buy a new printer for the Governance Office so we could print our own newsletters. There will a May newsletter.
Personnel Committee will meet to review the Inclement Weather FAQs.
As you can imagine there was steam coming from Parking Commission and folks who attend university-wide meetings regarding the parking rates issues.
We were handed the attached doc re changes in shared leave standards at the April meeting of the Classified Senate. Questions should be addressed to HREO 4-4946.
