Meeting Highlights

  • AppKIDS needs volunteers for the November 18th AppKIDS day as well as the upcoming concessions at the Nov. 19th football game.
  • Human Resources update - ComPsych provides employee assistance, up to 5 free counseling sessions, work/life balance tools. New position for relocation and duel career assistance for families moving to Boone to work at App. The Office of Conflict Management Services is now available to assist with mediation between Appalachian staff to provide facilitated conversations to find resolution. FLSA updates will be effective December 1st. If you think your position is impacted, talk to your department leadership; there are about 150 jobs on campus where the status will need to change. This is unrelated to EHRA/SHRA status.
  • The proposed By-Laws amendments passed with no dissension. The new By-Laws are now posted on the website and the new committee structure will begin soon. A google form will be sent to all Staff Senators to sign up for committees as this is an expectation of all Senators to be on a committee.

For more information, please read our full draft minutes from our Nov. 8th meeting on the "Meetings" page of this site.
