The Fine Arts Conference Room needs to also be confirmed for a 10:00 am reservation. Natalie will email Janessa to reserve the FA room.

Once an updated head count is given, Rachel Stewart will do the van request and can also drive.
Lunch will be provided for new staff members, administration, and staff council members. Once Natalie Miller has a confirmed number and list for lunch, Chauncey will get reservations and confirm the conference room with Myra. Dr. Cunningham will be joining the staff council for lunch. Chauncey will request a new list of members on Monday and also send an email to those planning on attending the orientation in order to receive an updated count.
The Public Relations office will also need to be notified (Haley Smith) to take pictures for the day.
Last year Valarie Case helped set up survey and sent out links to the attendees’ emails. Valarie said she would also help upload the minutes to the webpage.
Meeting: The next Staff Council meeting will be scheduled in September to go over new things for the upcoming year. The council must meet a minimum of four times, according to the bylaws and must also hold two general assemblies (Campus Cleanup, Assessment Day, New Staff Orientation).
