Joint meeting of the Board of Directors/Board of Trustees on Jan 13th. Series 62 (Personnel Administration) has been tabled for this year. ACCE was going to send a letter to Jerry Mezzatesta (House Education Committee) and Lloyd Jackson (Senate Education Committee) of Legislature to voice classified employees' concern.

Staff Development:
Johnette Jackson reports many responses to the personalized computer training. Teamwork & Communication sessions are being well attended.

Old Business:
Rt 480 crosswalk. There's been no word/comments about the video portraying the lights embedded in the pavement that was sent to the Division of Highways. Besides the crosswalk at the football field/west campus entrance, the crossing at High Street continues to be a problem.

The Council continues to be concerned about contractualism and contracted individuals in supervisory roles over Shepherd College classified employees. Questions/concerns were raised about the number of individuals moving from classified to non-classified positions. After extensive discussion on such concerns, it was decided that Anna Mary Walsh would request information from Dr. Ingle dealing with a list of contracted employees, contractual costs, and number of temporary employees for Shepherd College since last July.
