Sub-Committee Reports

Living Green: Deanne and Kristi will work on a community partners invite for next year’s Conference next week.  It was suggested that Sarah Erickson from the Aquarium and Mindy Granley from UMD be added to the invite list.  We will try for a Friday morning meeting in early February.

Old Business

Double-sided printing signage: Kristi has put up small business card size notes advertising the new duplex printing costs on all the lab monitors in the distance learning, quiet and library labs.  She has also put posters on the printers in those labs.

Cliff will talk with the English Department about announcing the change to students.  Kristi emailed Dan Pioro and asked him to send out an all campus email with this information as well.

 Printer cartridge recycling boxes:  Kristi put out 6 large collection boxes for printer/toner cartridges and cell phones.  It was mentioned that they may need bigger signs as they look like they are boxes awaiting the recycling receptacle themselves. Kristi will let Kevin know that he should let his staff know they are not to be tossed and will also make larger signs for them next week.

Sustainability Plan of Action:  Overall, the Duty Day presentation went very well and we received a lot of fantastic feedback during and after the session.  All of the notes made by employees will be categorized and summarized and made available on the blog and will also be emailed out.

Hanna also requested that the PowerPoint be made available on the Strategic Planning Portal Page.  The Council worked on making the PowerPoint usable for this and will send it to Hanna along with the list of employee comments.
