I. Sources of support for board members.
Diane expressed the wish that board members know where they can look for support. Some suggestions:
II. Faculty Council Appointments
ALUW sent the recommendations for council appointments to the Faculty Senate. All were successful. Formal approval will take place during the first Faculty Senate meeting of the school year, making the appointments official in early October.
III. Committee Membership
Most committee members were willing to stay on for another term. Ann Zald expressed concern in her Legislative committee report that new members on the committtee are needed. Jill McKinstry will be asked to serve as chair. An open invitation to serve on the Legislative committee will be issued to ALUW members. The issue of whether to retain a lobbyist during this next year is still being investigated.
IV. Pending Issues
The Community Colleges expressed a desire to do more collaborating with UW Libraries. The Library Executive Committee was consulted about what UW Libraries should be doing. The LEC did not want to start any new programs at this time. John Backes from North Seattle Community College presented a formal request to meet with him. At ALUW's request, Nancy Huling agreed to meet with him.
Chris reports a balance of ------ in the treasury. Diane requested that in future treasurer's reports, the lobbying fund be separated out. After much discussion, voluntary dues were set at $15. An additional donation of $15 for the lobbying fund will be suggested.
Diane plans to survey the members to determine what ALUW's current focus should be.
