  1. Jeri made a motion to accept the minutes from the previous meetings. Dennis seconded and the vote was unanimous to accept the minutes.
  2. Jen Deaderick made a web presence proposal for the Social Media Consultant position.
  3. Full faculty meeting December 11 in the Steve Heck room. The budget will be the main discussion.
  4. Board of Trustees meeting. We met with the Board Tuesday Dec. 2; they were very welcoming and listened to all that we had to say with open ears. Our main focus was converting more part-time employees to full-time. We made a compelling case: they could convert 4 faculty on part-time three-year contracts to full-time instead of hiring one person off the street – the cost would be about the same.
