Chair Appoints Trustees to Committees in Special Meeting

(Bradenton, Fla., October 4, 2011) — The State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) District Board of Trustees held a special meeting Tuesday, Oct. 4, at the Lakewood Ranch campus, for the purpose of appointing trustees to newly formed committees charged with looking at College operations and reporting findings and recommendations to the full Board at regular meetings.

The committees and their members are:

Budget: Dr. Craig Triguero, chair; Ed Bailey, vice chair; C. J. Fishman and Jennifer Saslaw, members.

College Staffing and Compensation: Charlene Neal, chair; Lori Moran, vice chair; Joe Miller, member.

Capital Improvements: Ann Moore, chair; Carlos Beruff, vice chair; Ed Bailey, member.

Carlos Beruff, chair of the SCF Board, said his goals in assigning trustees to these specific committees were to use full Board meetings more efficiently and to help trustees gain a better understanding of how the College is funded, including the formula used by the state Legislature and Florida Department of Education, and be alert for potential challenges for which the Board will need to prepare.

Beruff encouraged committee members to take a methodical, orderly approach to their assignments and be prepared to present committee reports at the January 2012 Board meeting.

Following committee assignments, Board members engaged in a general discussion and talked about several topics that committees might review or that could be future agenda items at Board meetings. Some potential items mentioned were budget allocations and process, the change order process, salary adjustments, tuition adjustments, and employee benefit package.

The next regular meeting of the Board is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 8 a.m., at the SCF Bradenton Board Room, Building 7.
