Call to order
Julie Heard called meeting to talk about award changes.
Proposing changing spring convocation to only faculty awards.
Many council members had concerns about this.
Will continue to use online nomination form.
If this happens what would we do about our award?
Most council members agreed that we need to continue to award a staff member. Possible suggestions included finding a different award ceremony, fighting to keep it at spring convocation, and/or celebrating at outreach event.

Announcement will go out middle Sept. Deadline is mid Oct.
