                                                             Professional and Support Staffing Plan

Department:       Division of Outreach (RCCED)                         Academic Year:         2009-2010


Please indicate how each of the following factors will affect staffing for the next academic year.

    6.       Results of Self-Study (How effective was your department in achieving the goals set during the past year?)

             Considering this is my first term as director of the Center, I feel that we have effectively crafted change in the communities we serve through economic development,
             education, leadership, and community development work.

             Our Center now has a five year strategic plan that will guide us to complete much needed initiatives to accentuate the positive aspects of the Black Belt and promote
             economic growth through tourism, infrastructure development and growth, business retention and expansion, etc.


    7.       Assessment Plan (Is your staff adequate to achieve the results desired for the upcoming year?)

             We are understaffed. To really foster impact and change, and to run parallel efforts, two team members would be appreciated. If we are to implement the Hometown
             Competitiveness program, I will need one specialist just for that initiative, and an additional staff member to work with existing industries on business retention and
             expansion.


    8.       Availability of current staff (How many of your current staff will be retiring, going on leaves of absences, returning from leaves of absences, etc.?)

             None to my knowledge.


    9.       Availability of part-time help/work-study, etc.

             I requested a work-study, but was not assigned one. The Division of Outreach has one that I am currently utilizing. However, one could be used for the Division and
             one for the RCCED. I need a student to assist in information gathering, research, database maintenance, website updating, etc.


    10.      Other factors affecting your staffing

             Travel. Frequently, I am away from the Center, and my assistant director also travels frequently. With a ten-county area, we have meetings, host trainings and take
             part in educational opportunities that take us away from our physical office.

             Currently, we do not have cellular devices to assist in managing our day-to-day operations, which makes it difficult to effectively do our jobs in the most efficient
             manner and at the urgency of some of our requests.


                                                                                         34
Based on the factors described above, the following changes in professional and support staffing are requested for the upcoming academic year.
