CHAIR’S REPORT                                                                                Jackie Skryd

Jackie attended COP last week in Tallahassee. The Senate Bill was moving forward in the Senate but not the House. The Bill still includes a 20% cap for individual institutions and a 10% cap for the system. Name change language has been removed. Jackie also attended the Chancellor’s Innovation Summit last week in Tallahassee.

ACTION ITEMS

COMMITTEE REPORTS

Ad Hoc Committee Reports –                                                 Jackie Skryd (Grants)

We are working on the newsletter that will be released in March. The next Spotlight will be released in April and will focus on Math success initiatives. This will align with the meeting that the Florida College System is hosting in April at St. Petersburg College for Math faculty.

Communicating our Story                                                       John Gyllin (Foundation)

John collected information that found that 94% of funds raised by Florida College System institutions is classified as ‘restricted’. Since the vast majority of funds raised are restricted, this shows that as an aggregate, Foundation staffing cannot be supported if the DSL language is passed.

2018 Spring Conference Planning                                          Monica Rodriguez

Monica emailed the FCRD board members a conference planning update.

OLD BUSINESS

By-Laws Amendments                                                            Bill Shustowski

Information needs to be clarified in the by-laws about how the nomination committee is formed.  We will discuss adjustments to this language at a future FCRD Board meeting.

Board Member Recruitment                                                  John Gyllin

There are two Foundation positions and one Grants position open on the FCRD Board. The Board reviewed the nominees.

Motion to approve Christopher Knife and Heather Mitchell be appointed to the Board pending they accept the position by John Gyllin; seconded by Bill Shustowski. Motion passed.

Motion to approve Matt Matthews be appointed to the Board by Maureen Capp; seconded by Ann Decker. Motion passed.
