8 May 2001 Meeting Minutes
7:30am to 8:50am

Present: Fahey, McCahan, Wixson, Crangle, Freyhofer, Keefe, Moore J, Fogleman, Ramsay, Clark, Hage, Mathis, Barry, Moore D, Kent. Excused: Campbell, Landry. Absent: Ayers.

Informational Discussion:
* Crangle provided new handouts; appropriation information for FY03 and Steve Reno’s annual report to the Board of Trustees.
* Crangle reviewed the PSU financial condition information for 6/30/00, including an additional handout concerning tuition discount rates, in tab 8 of the CBC binder.

Communication Plan:
Communication subcommittee is Freyhofer, Fogleman and Crangle. A draft communication strategy was distributed and reviewed. A brief summary of each set of minutes will be sent via email to all employees. A reply option on those minutes was suggested to help with questions arising from the email. Both sets of minutes will be forwarded to Crangle and Wixson for review before distribution. Also suggested was an informational page on the website to help with financial terms. (There is a book on budgeting from NACUBO that explains terms; Crangle will make it available for anyone who wants to borrow it.) It was unanimously approved and adopted as written, with two minor corrections (“personnel” for “personal”, and a typo). The communication plan will be added to the website at http://www.plymouth.edu/finman/cbudc/commplan.htm.

Open meetings:
The consensus was to open all CBC meetings to the campus community, unless there is a need for a closed session due to topic, or the committee finds the open format too disruptive.

Information to students:
Will try to get info to students via the Student Senate homepage. Rob Massey, as new editor of the Clock, will also be contacted.

The committee agreed that a joint session of the College Planning Committee and the Campus Budget Committee is an important communication step.

Wixson adjourned the meeting at 8:50. The next scheduled meeting of the CBC is Tuesday, May 15 at 7:30am in HUB 119.

Respectfully submitted,
Nancy Pettengill, Scribe
