 In the spirit of continuing campus discourse on current topics, I thought you would be interested in the following message from Antonette Martinez, Boulder Campus Staff Council chair, on “Staff Council 2005-2006 Outlook.”

Staff Council 2005-2006 Outlook
By Antonette Martinez, Chair, Boulder Campus Staff Council

The University of Colorado Boulder Campus Staff Council is preparing to kick off the 2005-2006 season. New officers inducted at the June meeting are: Chair - Antonette Martinez, Registrar's Office, replacing co-chairs Lisa Lucio and Tanya Patzer; Vice-Chair - Lynn Della Guardia, Faculty Teaching Excellence Program, replacing Susan Fey; Secretary - Pam Lingenfelter, College of Arts & Sciences, replacing Antonette Martinez; and Treasurer - Tanya Patzer, Athletics, replacing Rosalie Lynn.

Last May, Staff Council honored Program Assistant Becky Guerriero for her many years of service to the University community and to Staff Council at a retirement reception. Replacing Becky will be long-time council member and former co-chair Patti Zike. In addition to her previous experience on Staff Council, Patti has valuable knowledge of PeopleSoft, strong computer skills and great understanding of the campus community and University administration.

We would like to thank those members who will no longer be serving on council. We truly appreciate their dedication and service to the Boulder Campus Staff Council and wish them all the very best in their future endeavors.

Next Steps
Staff Council will hold a retreat on Thursday, July 28 to review accomplishments of the past year and set new goals for the coming year. Following are a few of the scheduled action items:

• Lisa Lucio of Academic Affairs will be inducted as Parliamentarian

• The council will look at ways to boost staff morale as well as how to implement those ideas

• Jeremy Hueth of University Counsel will review policies for state employees in regard to using university equipment (e.g., email accounts, photo copiers, telephones, etc.), especially during legislative sessions

• A session on stress reduction techniques to use in the work place is also scheduled

Mark Your Calendars
Three big events are scheduled for fall. The first of two blood drives, co-sponsored by Staff Council, UCSU and Bonfils Blood Center, will be held August 29, 31, Sept. 1 and 2 in University Memorial Center room 235. The second blood drive will be held Nov. 17-21, also in UMC 235. The annual Staff Council Fall Appreciation Breakfast will take place on Sept. 21 in the UMC Glenn Miller Ballroom. Look for Buff Bulletin notices, email reminders and fliers on these events as well as additional programs planned for spring semester.

I want to emphasize that all CU-Boulder employees - not just elected representatives - can help with Staff Council events. If you have any questions, please call Patti Zike at (303) 492-5473.

Our Mission
Staff Council represents staff employees by serving as a liaison between employees and the University administration and other members of the Boulder campus community. We also recommend proposals to the administration that are designed to improve the status and protect the rights of staff employees.

There are 26 staff members, both professional exempt and classified, serving as your Boulder Campus Staff Council representatives, seven of whom are newly elected for the 2005-2006 term. For a complete list of your representatives and the areas they represent, please visit the Staff Council web page.

I look forward to meeting and talking with all of you in the coming year about Staff Council programs and services. Best wishes to everyone in our campus community for a successful year ahead.
