1. July 9th Annual Town Hall.
Rachael Drummond reviewed the proposed outline for the July 9th Annual All-Staff Town Hall. She will return to the PC at their June 26th Quarterly meeting with a draft presentation.
2. Impacts of the Board’s Decision on Merit Increases.
Delaine Orendorff and Bob Roesch reviewed the impacts on staff morale, equity, retention, and hiring resulting from the Board of Trustees’ recent decision to not approve a merit salary increase. Going forward, each PC member will take responsibility for their entity, working closely with Human Resources to ensure equity within entities as well as across the organization, as much as possible. The PC will review the status of this in six months. Even though there is no salary increase, the PC also approved the 1.5% range movement of all job categories to stay consistent with the market.
3. Renewal of Cooperative Agreement.
Katy Schmoll and her staff have been reviewing the current cooperative agreement for the management of NCAR after receiving the news that the National Science Board approved the renewal with NSF for another five years. Negotiations on the next cooperative agreement are expected to commence soon.
4. NSF Budget Guidance for NCAR’s Base Program.
Maura Hagan and Rena Brasher-Alleva reviewed recent budget discussions with NSF regarding FY13 and FY14 funding for NCAR’s base program. NSF appreciated the clarity with which Maura presented the budget scenarios. They also valued the interactions with Tom Bogdan as well as the community’s support of NCAR.
The President’s Council adjourned at 12:30 pm.
