 ACTION ITEMS

COMMITTEE REPORTS

SPRING CONFERENCE COMMITTEE Jennifer Peterson, Ellen Burns

Jennifer and Ellen are working on the agreement with the Omni Hotel Jacksonville for the April 5-7, 2017 spring conference. The food minimum cost is $8,000. The room block includes 50 rooms per night and the FCRD conference would need to reserve at least 80% of these rooms (40 rooms per night) by March 21, 2017. The room block may be extended to include more rooms at a later date if Omni has space available at that time. The Board noted support for moving forward with this agreement. Jennifer will send Jackie the conference save the date electronically.

COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE: Jackie Skryd and Monica Rodriguez, Co-Chairs

Jackie is working on the next FCRD newsletter. Aaron will be sending Jackie a note to include in the newsletter. Monica has been adding great updates on the FCRD Facebook page.   

STRATEGIC PLANNING

  • Goal 1 – Chair: Maureen Capp

Provide World Class Professional Development Opportunities for FCRD

John Gyllin recently attended the CASE conference and talked with the CASE Community College Director about aligning with FCRD and learning more about what we do.  Jackie and Monica had a good experience attending the Federal Funding Taskforce (FFTF) organized by CASE. A grant-focused conference will be held by CASE November 1-3, 2017 in DC, with FFTF being scheduled for the three days prior to the conference.

  • Goal 2– Chair: John Gyllin

Strategically Communicate the Impact of our System

Jackie talked about the importance of including a broader number of people beyond just the board to develop an action group to help tell our story in a cohesive way. This would help support statewide advocacy, provide information to Aaron for COP, and encourage development of collective documents to share with federal level legislative groups. The Board will consider which individuals could be a good fit for this action group and bring suggestions of names to the December Board meeting.
