Nov 21, 2019 Per the recommendation of the Campus and Community Relations Committee (CCRC), Staff Senate plans to join the SGA in a resolution to recommend that campus buildings be locked down earlier, with card-only access after regular work hours, somewhat similar to the system recently adopted by UAB. The SGA is nearing the completion of their research and resolution approval process, at which time CCRC will review their resolution and prepare a resolution for the Staff Senate’s approval. The Communications Committee has developed a one-page reference guide that has been sent to the OMC for design. The Employee Benefits and Development Committee met with Louise O’Keefe, Director of the Faculty and Staff Clinic. The committee discussed the staffing issues in the clinic and came to the conclusion to work on a joint resolution between Staff Senate and Faculty Senate to address concerns. The Events Committee met this month to continue our planning for "Take Your Child To Work" Day. Expect to see communications go out about the event in January 2020. The Operations Committee discussed the lack of clarity in some university policies. They also articulated the need for a current vendor list for employees to reference. The Service and Outreach Committee is preparing a communication to notify the campus about volunteer opportunities at Santa's Village this holiday season. They are also exploring the possibility of UAH becoming a Special Olympics site. The Executive Committee has met with staff representatives at UA and UAB twice now to discuss areas of shared interest and potential collaboration.
