be a major item at the Spring assembly. Karen Mokrzycki, our
representative to that committee, is willing to make herself
available for a meeting as well as provide background on discussions
when the bylaws are ready for review by members. LAUC-SC will need
to review our divisional bylaws after the revised statewide bylaws
3. R&PD funds:
In past years unused R&PD funds were pooled and redistributed at the
end of the year to members who overspent their allotment. Funds were
distributed on a ratio basis, with lower-paid members reimbursed
more. Under the current budget conditions, unused funds were last
year not redistributed. The membership agreed that LAUC should first
ask when the old allocation method will be re-instituted, and
secondly, verify that funds guaranteed under the MOU are being fully
4. Service on Academic Senate Committees:
The Academic Senate identified six committees that it was thought,
both lecturers and librarians could sit on as non-voting members.
The committees are: Academic Freedom, Admissions and Financial Aid,
Education Abroad Program, Educational Policy, Preparatory Education,
and Teaching. It was later discovered that only instructors of
for-credit courses could serve in this capacity. Ben Crow, Chair of
Committee on the Library, has agreed to draft a letter to the
Academic Senate supporting the possibility of librarians serving on
5. No Advancement decisions:
Ken Lyons distributed a sample proposed appendix to PAPA/LS. The
proposed appendix clarifies the interpretation of a "no advancement"
decision. It clarifies when a librarian would be reviewed again, and
what previous work could be considered in the next review. It was
pointed out that the proposed appendix could turn a "no advancement"
decision into a deferment. The membership agreed there should be a
clear definition of "no advancement". This will be discussed at the
next membership meeting and then turned over to CAPA. Ken Lyons
invited other thoughts and proposals.
