Meeting called to order at 10:15 AM at Brew Station
Minutes from 5-1-2012 Meeting — Approved.
Previously Made Decisions — None this week.
Budget: Strategic Retreat — Moving it to June means twice the expense in one fiscal year. So we need to (1) decide where to take out money for it and (2) set a budget for it. Everyone is in agreement about using some funds that were designated for “carryover” and that $1,700 should be reasonable.
Budget: Convention — So far, we’re under budget! Haven’t had a delegate debriefing yet and haven’t reimbursed drivers yet. We’ve thought of 6 drivers, will offer $75 each. Then we still have some funds left for a little bit of pizza, etc. We’ll try to meet soon!
Budget: Trivia Night — Ashley’s willing to do the planning. We’ll spend a little ($90ish) on chips and cheap beer.
Budget: EOYP — We’ve already paid for the park reservation. The Social Events line has about $500 remaining for food and drink.
Great Cover-Up — We’ve publicized on FB and the social list. Leaving from CGE at 7 pm.
Officer Transition — Outgoing officers need to plan ASAP to meet with their incoming counterparts.
Review Strategic Plan — Will do this at the May 22nd EC meeting.
Email / Mail Stuff — Bret got an unhappy response to our recent all-BU email regarding summer health insurance sign-up deadline. For stuff like that (just voluntary, informative), we should set up a “do not contact” list. We’re still required to notify all-BU about the Fair Share audit. It seems that we should be doing this by mail (not just email); we’ll need to determine whether we can mail just a brief summary with a URL for the full audit report (because mailing 400 or 500 booklets will get pretty pricy).
Labor Notes Conference — Mindy went! Said it was “super interesting to get the big picture” of what other national/internationals are like, and their momentum toward member-driven reform.
Reimbursement — We need to reimburse Angela Baxter/ASOSU for the canopy we used at the Solidarity Fair. Angela will ask Ashley to verify the amount, probably $175. This will come from the RA Campaign line.
Bargaining Update — Meeting tonight to plan for the next session (this Friday, May 11th). B-Team is working on some numbers for health insurance stuff to share with OSU. Hope to talk about family/medical leave policy and some (non)discrimination language.
Ed Ray Meeting— Next Wednesday (May 16th) at 11 AM. Jack, Wren, Mindy, Sean, maybe Matt will go.
LBL-CLC — Jack went on the 2nd. They’re happy we’re participating and interested in being involved in CGE stuff.
ASOSU Elections — They seem to have done a poor job counting votes. We’ll ask them to recount. Also the web interface was not great. Mindy will email a CGE member who serves as chair of the ASOSU Ethics and Oversight committee with the names of the EC as a petition to investigate the election inaccuracies and to suggest improvements to the voting system.
Meeting adjourned at 11:55 AM
