14 September 2004

Present: Staples, Fahey, Landry, Mathis, Huckins, Crangle, Sparks, McCool, Hage, Thurston, Hines, Cocchiarella.

Richard Sparks agreed to chair the meetings until elections can be held. Bill Crangle suggested not electing anyone this week because all members have not yet been chosen (there are three faculty vacancies). Faculty Speaker Gary McCool is working on filling those spots.

Bill handed out a proposed work plan for 2004-05, listed in no particular order. Bill briefly described the items on the list, which included development of the biennial budget for 06-07, which has just been delivered to the governor’s office. Bill will have a formal plan ready for the next meeting. Please send any additional discussion items to Nancy Pettengill (nancyp@plymouth.edu) before the end of next week.

Bill went over the 2005 budgets for General Fund, Residential Life, Dining, and the HUB. He also mentioned that enrollment looks good in both total numbers and the mix. We have 335 unconfirmed students, which is fairly normal for this time of year. Did everyone read the annual finance report that Bill sent out on email in August?

Richard noted that the issue of increases in the cost of benefits on a national level should be an ongoing topic for the CBC.

The next Campus Budget Committee meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 28 at 8am in the Student Senate Room.
