UNFINISHED BUSINESS
Scholarship:  Reyna sent a draft of the Scholarship to all Council members in August. Council will review and send input via email to Reyna. Council Officers will compile input and submit new draft to Mary Sue Johnson. A copy of the final version will be put into each Notebook. Input, new draft & final version should be done by October 2008 Council meeting.

Council Visibility Task Force: Currently 3 members. Suggested Council have mini-socials in each Area; instead of the Areas coming to one place, Council goes to the Areas. Suggested the mini-socials be once a month.

Luncheon Motions: did not pass due to no quorum. Reyna had sent an email to Council asking for a vote on three motions from the August Council meeting.

NEW BUSINESS
Luncheon motions: Mary Ann made three motions about the Classified Luncheons. As no quorum was present at today’s meeting, Reyna will send an email to Council asking for everyone to vote.
Council members who have voted will phone members who have not yet voted.

Area 6 September Social:  Human Resources has approved Council having a Social at 3:00 - 4:00 instead of noon to 1:00. HR needs to approve the time change so that Staff can attend the Social without needing to take time off of work [vacation, personal time, etc].  Reyna will ask HR to send an email to cla-emp to let Staff know that they will not be penalized for attending the Social. The 3-4 time slot was chosen to cover both day and swing shifts.
Bon Appetit gave an estimate, which those in attendance agreed was too much to spend on such an informal gathering. Reyna will work w/BA for less expensive, yet still fun and tasty options.

October Luncheon: Area 3. “Keep It Simple”.

Web: Pam will include an email link on the Council website for those who might be interested in joining Council.
