FLORIDA COUNCIL FOR RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT
BOARD MEETING MINUTES
Friday, January 15, 2016
The meeting was called to order at 11:02 am by Ms. Maureen Capp.
Absent: Nancy Botero, Sueellen Mann, Monica Rodriguez
APPROVAL OF MINUTES
The minutes of the December 2, 2015 board meeting were approved. Motion: Ms. Green, second Mr. West. Motion passed.
Ms. Green noted that the FCRD budget balance is $15,314.11. Mr. Cronrath asked if FCRD had ever participated in a charitable donation or collection of items for charities. There was discussion that rather than donating funds, perhaps members could donate items like books or canned goods which benefit the cities where FCRD holds conferences. Ms. Capp said that as we move closer to the FCRD gathering in April in St. Petersburg, perhaps we can work with the host committee on this.
Ms. Capp will be on the call for the January 21 Council of Presidents (COP) meeting. COP has three main areas they are working on: 1) asking legislators for $74 million for campus security related to guns on campus, 2) requesting funds for mental health services (this has been tabled), and 3) requesting $20 million in workforce funding. Maureen will send the report out to the board on those initiatives. Mike from AFP will do a legislative update for us at the April conference.
The board discussed the proposal from Doug Ryan Consulting to assist with planning efforts for FCRD conferences. Motion: Mr. Gyllin moved to approve Ms. Capp and Ms. Skryd to negotiate an agreement with Doug Ryan, second, Mr. West. Motion passed.
