5. Old Business
We still have some open positions to fill on Governance
Committees. Please let Sarah know if you
are able to step up and volunteer for one.
We still have an opening for our Recorder for the PTSA. Any volunteers?
Don’t forget to apply for Professional Development
funds. While the fall deadline has
passed, you can still be considered on a case-by-case basis. This includes professional organization
memberships, conferences, etc. Be sure
and read emails from “Professional Development” to stay in the loop on
deadlines and opportunities.
Great ideas to make CVCC better – Any new suggestions?
For Convocation, can we live broadcast it (in addition to recording
it) through Blackboard Collaborate? This
would allow staff who can’t leave their desk to participate live as time
permits and also allow them to type in a question during any Q and A that is offered. This would be a great way to allow live involvement
in addition to the taped version after the fact.
6. New Business
Goal Setting for this year – What should be our focus this
Our focus will be on building community and camaraderie
within the part-time staff. We would also
like to help members be more informed about all aspects of the campus and plan
to invite speakers from the “front lines” to join us at future meetings. Ideas of areas to include: Financial Air, Workforce,
Dual-Enrollment, Early College, Great Expectations, Transfer Process,
Social Event for us – When and what?
We will have food for our December 7 meeting.
Service Project-To be determined- Would anyone like to head
On hold for now until our numbers are back up. We will encourage staff to participate in the
Salvation Army stocking project led by Classified Staff.
Fundraiser-To be determined – Would anyone like to head this
On hold for now until our numbers are back up.
7. CVCC Engage—Campus
information presentation on areas of interest to our group
Kimberly Williams with ODU Online provided an impromptu
overview of what her role is. ODU Online
is a degree completion program and she is located upstairs in Bedford Hall. All classes are offered online, in a WebX
live format. Students in this program
join live classes on the ODU campus online.
They have many programs to which CVCC students can transfer upon
completion here and they accept students with a 2.5+ GPA. This can be a great way for students to
complete a 4-year degree from a large state university without relocating. She
can also assist students with joining programs that may be partially completed
online as well, with some residential time needed in Norfolk as well.
