General Committee Chair's Report.
Kane submitted a written progress report on the work of the Recruitment & Retention Committee to the LAUC Executive Committee. The committee completed two surveys of the LAUC membership in addition to other substantial research. The group is on track for their work to be completed and a final report with recommendations to be turned in by their original deadline of March 7th.. Future LAUC-SC Executive Committees will follow up on the committee's formal recommendations on an annual basis as needed to ensure that the issues that are important to the membership that are raised in the report continue to receive attention. The group's report will also be helpful in informing the work of the statewide Diversity Committee. UL Steel remarked that formal recommendations like these from the committee can be very useful in moving conversations and issues forward. Scott thanked the committee for their good work to date.
Kane continues to work on getting a speaker to talk to the membership. A second email invitation has been sent to Michael Mateas. Kane will also send a message to the membership asking for suggested speakers that members may have seen at conferences or elsewhere [done]. We have a budget of $3,000 that can be used to bring in a speaker.
Secretary's Report. Nothing to report at this time.
