Bess called the meeting to order at 2:20 P.M. and read the minutes from the preceding meeting. After one correction, the minutes were approved.
Treasurer's Report: To be attached
Social: No report.
Welfare: Deb was not present. Bess noted acknowledgments from Sue Marcoulier and Tom Agan for retirement parties and gifts; another retirement is coming up.
Nominations: Bess and Barb will meet in early April. Hazen's system for nominations has worked smoothly. Elections are held before the Spring General Meeting.
Scholarship Committee: Pat mentioned that the requirements for scholarship applications need to be clarified. The phrase 'not to exceed $25 per term' may be added. Pat will make the corrections on the DCLSA Web page.
By the end of May or June, we will need to find someone else to clean the Staff Room.
Ideas for spring functions: Hike? Tea party? Ice-cream trucks on the Green?
Spring General Meeting: Collis Common Ground is convenient, and refreshments are allowed. Tentative date is Tuesday, June 16, at 10 A.M.; alternate date, Monday, June 15.
Issues connected with disruptions during construction: Parking? Courier van? Barb reported on a meeting with Miss Otto in which several DCLSA concerns were brought up.
Suzanne suggested brainstorming sessions on the future relationship between Library staff and Computing Services. How much of a 'merger' will there be? Library Systems is currently working closely with Computing Services. Should there be a Staff Association liaison to the Berry-Baker Change Committee? Barb suggested that this person should be a DCLSA board member or departmental liaison.
A motion to adjourn was made, seconded, and passed. We adjourned at 3 P.M.
