Election and Annual Meeting: Please post flyers for the election. Gov. Bradley is the election manager and will send out emails regarding poll watching.

Meeting with Bargaining Unit: Approximately 35 people attended.

Budget for FY2015: There discussion about reducing the budget deficit. Discussion about whether to keep membership in the Metro Council which CREA joined a few years ago. CREA does have sizable reserves. The investment committee needs to discuss what CREA should be doing with cash. Overarching questions regarding the budget that were raised: What are the reserves for? Should the board revisit the scholarship/loan repayment allocations or process? Gov. Brass motioned to accept the proposed budget as revised. Gov. Perl seconded the motion. Motion was approved.

Grievance: CREA needs to decide by Friday whether to move forward on a step 2 EEO grievance that involves disparate treatment. The Grievance Committee discussed in depth and feels that this employee has been treated differently. The Committee voted to move forwards. Gov. Brass moved upon the recommendation of the grievance committee that this grievance should precede. Gov. Jones seconded the motion. Motion approved.

Meeting adjourned at 1:00.

Budget for FY2015 was discussed: Questions arose including: Should CREA make charitable donations? Should the budget better reflect the actual funds CREA has on-hand (i.e., savings)? Should CREA do more with the reserve funds? Should changes be made to the scholarships and student loans repayments because the FY2015 proposed budget would run a deficit?  Discussion will continue next week.

Next week.

VP Nominee for CREA Election: There doesn’t seem to be anyone running. There is a lot of work and it will mean more work for the President and other VP. Need to work on getting more people involved in CREA. Should we discuss how to spread the work load so that it is easier to balance competing interests?

Budget for FY2015 was discussed.

Meeting adjourned at 1:00.
