The meeting was called to order at 1:15 p.m. in Memorial 313. 

The minutes from the December meeting were approved by a motion from Dag and were seconded by David.  Motion carried unanimously.

Dag announced that he had been elected Chair of the Safety Committee.  His task was to determine if campus members saw safety as a benefit.  After some discussion, it was agreed that safety is not a benefit per se but a necessity.

A question arose regarding the Staff Handbook and how current it is.  Jason stated that he based the quiz questions from it so it is pretty accurate.  However, it still reflects that Great-West is our insurance provider.  The Committee will recommend that HR update the handbook and place a notice in the Fountain to inform everyone once they have done so.

Jason provided feedback on the quiz.  There were 180 responses which is a fairly decent response rate.  The top five lunch session ideas included the following: tuition remission, retirement, fitness center, flex dollars, and shared leave plan.  Sonja will set up a session on tuition remission in March.

There was some dialogue regarding the "Employee Complaint Procedure" that was recommended for the college to implement by a consultant.  It was passed to our committee to review from the Director's Roundtable group.  Before we start to fully immerse ourselves in this, it will be presented to the President's Council.  We will be notified when we should start the review process.

The meeting was adjourned at 2:15 p.m.


Next SFBC meeting: Thursday, March 4, 2010 at 1:15 p.m., in Memorial 313.
