Supplemental Requests for Funding:
Center for Excellence in Leadership – New Position Request – Jesse Nelson: Jesse Nelson presented two scenarios; one for Assistant Director and the other for Program Support Supervisor II. The objective is to develop programming that builds the leadership capacity of at least 2000 CWU students and develop an experiential leadership development program called Leadership Quest. The S&A Committee had questions for Jesse regarding position responsibilities and how each position would function.
MOTION: Sara Ruiz made a motion to approve $35,296 for the Program Support Supervisor II. There was no second. Motion died.
Discussion: Several committee members agreed that a new position would fit better in the base budget funding next year. The concern is funding a new position in a supplemental funding year.
MOTION: Anna Boyer made a motion to fund the Assistant Director position for $58,500. There was no second. Motion died.
Discussion: A suggestion was made to hiring a temporary full-time position that could be funded until the next base budget funding cycle. Jesse Nelson will return next week after giving some thought to hiring a temporary full-time position.
Schedule of Next Meeting:
The next meeting is Wednesday, April 9, at 5:30 p.m. Wendy Williams and Teri Willard asked to be excused from the April 9 meeting. The committee approved.
For the good of the order:
Jack Baker and Ed Day met today with S&A funding recipients to address the new guidelines including base budget (four-year) funding, and answer their questions and concerns. The providers understood the process and did not have concerns for the new process. Anna Boyer will have the BOD review the guidelines and give their approval, so the approval process can move forward.
The meeting adjourned at 6:30 p.m.
