type of system.
Employee Recognition (Mary, Donna, OPEN)

professional development. If you are

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. This includes professional
organization memberships, conferences, etc.
Be sure and read emails from “Professional Development” to stay in the
loop on deadlines and opportunities.
Interested in attending New Horizons? Deadline to register is February 16. See email from Dr. Capps. Visit newhorizons.vccs.edu to see if you
think it would be relevant for you.
Registrations will be paid by CVCC.
Alison Moore, Professional Development Coordinator has a streamlined
form for this conference as well.
Great ideas to make CVCC better
Any new suggestions?
Update—Blackboard Collaborate didn’t happen for
Spring Convocation. Would you use
it? Sarah is going to get the tapings
accessible through the Bulletin.
Be sure and complete the survey about the
mini-Convocation that is in the works for those who can’t attend the one before
6. New Business
Do we want to pull together a fundraiser or service project
Yes, we would like to plan a pizza sale in March or
April. Wednesday would be the best day
of the week for our members. Sarah will contact
Deanne re: Student Center and Al with Vito’s Pizza.
What’s what at CVCC: Share what your office does and what others on
