C.  Mr. Pecha approved the scheduling of a Microsoft Office training session for employees.  He suggested contacting the NWOSU Business Department Chair initially.  Kingcade will contact Dr. Palmer to ask if faculty would be able to schedule training.  Herning stated that if faculty were unable to scheduled, then she would check with Career Services.  It was also suggested to have a survey on the Staff Council webpage and ask employees what program they were most interested in getting training.

D.  The Campus Kudos form was approved by Mr. Pecha.  Herning stated that the only change will be to designate Denise Bay as the only person to submit the form to and she will distribute to the committee.  Angelia Case will design a certificate for those employees’ who are nominated for Campus Kudos.  Herning stated that she had recently met with the NW News to have an article in the newspaper announcing Campus Kudos and the new webpage.
