ANALYSIS: Foundation Update • The Mendocino College Foundation is considering hiring a full-time Executive Director to manage the activities of the Foundation. The experience of the last three years has revealed that neither a full-time nor part-time Director of Development meets the growing needs of the Foundation. Depending upon the organizational structure to be utilized, I anticipate that the District will be asked to provide health benefits for the Executive Director, in the same manner as we provided benefits to the first full-time Director of Development a few years ago. • Final planning is in process for the annual Gala on the Green, to be held on September 12 at Fetzer Valley Oaks. With the ticket price being reduced 40% this year (from $125 to $75), it is anticipated that there will be substantial community interest in the event. Please refer potential attendees to the Foundation office (or me) for tickets. • Attended the National Presidents' Fundraising Conference sponsored by the Council for Resource Development. Engaged in extensive discussions about the optimal relationship between a Foundation Board and the Board of Trustees. Would like to reconvene the Trustees/Foundation Relations Subcommittee to review and discuss the conference materials, and need a replacement for Wade on this subcommittee. • The Foundation Marketing Committee is nearing completion of a new Foundation website. I will send you a link when it is up and running. Expectations for a New Academic Year • Eagerly awaiting arrival of new faculty and staff, who undoubtedly will affect the rest of us with their enthusiasm and fresh ideas. • Anticipating increasing number of students, as CSU closes their doors to thousands. • Students may have more difficulty getting the classes they want at the times they want. • Expect more students to turn to distance education classes. • Expect more students to seek and obtain financial aid. • Will be working with employee groups to negotiate reductions in employee costs, which amount to 82% of our total budget. • Will be looking to cut $800,000 to $1,000,000 from the 2010-2011 budget. • On the good side, distance ed classes reported as part of Willits registrations have grown to the extent that Willits now qualifies for a higher level of center funding. • Per Chancellor Jack Scott, we will focus on transfer education, career and technical training and basic skills. Lower priority will be placed on "recreational" classes. • We will be exploring the possible conversion of avocational, life-long learning classes into community extension workshops. • We will be re-evaluating our priorities and staff vacancies and considering department reorganizations to best use our limited resources. • We will need to spend time and effort seeking alternative revenue sources. • We will continue to provide an excellent quality education to our students! Community Connections • Had lunch with Bert Mosier, CEO of Ukiah Chamber of Commerce, to discuss Chamber finances. • As newly elected Treasurer of AAUW, attended two board planning meetings. • With Larry Perryman, visited Dave Geck, Superintendent of Lake County Schools, Mendocino College Foundation Director and member of the Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee, to discuss Kelseyville location of new College center. • With Larry Perryman, visited Kelly Cox, Lake County Administrator, to discuss Kelseyville location of new College center. • With Larry Perryman, visited Marilyn and Myron Holdenreid, Lake County business persons and member of the Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee (Myron), to discuss Kelseyville location of new College center. • Served as greeter at Chamber of Commerce mixer held at Full Spectrum Properties. • Assumed office of President of the Ukiah Rotary and held my first general meetings and first Board meeting. • Attended meeting of Leadership Mendocino board and planning committee. • Met with other Rotarians to discuss possible formation of Rotaract Club (for members 18-30 years old). ITEM NO: 6.2 DATE: August 5, 2009 SUBJECT: EDUCATION AND STUDENT SERVICES REPORT SYNOPSIS: This is a report of some of the activities and events that have occurred over the past few weeks. ANALYSIS: 1. Continued Trimming of Services for Fall 2009 With the state budget finally being signed, the college is now able to make better-informed decisions about any cutback in services. The deans have continued strategic cancellations of classes for Fall 2009, keeping in mind the need to preserve CTE, transfer and Basic Skills offerings. At this time, only a few classes district-wide are closed and students who register in the next week should be able to get the classes that they need to meet their educational goals. Faculty have been very helpful in ensuring that they are teaching the classes most in demand for students. In the Student Services area, the expectation is that there will be fewer counseling hours available throughout the fall and fewer support staff. Greater use of federally-funded student workers is probable and some curtailment of office hours. 2. Welcome Week Planning Despite bad budget news, the college still intends to do a full-scale Welcome Week for students in August. Spearheaded by Lana Eberhard, this year’s Welcome Week will feature a more prominent welcome table with giveaway wheel, student-led tours, specials at Schat’s, free food like popcorn and snow cones, and a daily performance in the quad. Welcome Week activities run from August 17-20, and participants are welcome. 3. Instructional Relocations To make room for new CTE Dean Sue Goff, VP Randall and Executive Assistant Rose Bell recently moved to the CVPA and are bunking with Charlie Duffy. The marketing/graphics/ ComEx department, consisting of Christine Mullis and Lisa Lunde, moved to Room 203, and Mary Houghton will move to the Instruction Office as one of the support staff for Dean Goff. With two instructional deans and the Director of Distance Education in the same location, more collaboration and innovation should be possible. ITEM NO: 6.3.1 DATE: August 5, 2009 SUBJECT: ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES REPORT SYNOPSIS: A brief summary of activities and events. ANALYSIS: 1. State Budget On July 28th, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a package of bills that revise the 2009-10 budget adopted by the Legislature in February, which imposes deep cuts to our system of community colleges. The cuts will reduce community college spending by over $680 million from the amount approved in February and increase enrollment fees to $26 per unit effective Fall 2009. The budget also includes a workload reduction that will match funded enrollment with available funding and language to ensure full repayment of the maintenance factor, and provides local districts flexibility to accommodate the cuts in categorical programs. The outlook for this recently adopted Budget continues to be of concern. State revenue for the month of June 2009 underperformed the revised forecast for the personal income tax (off 18%) and the sales tax (off 9%), indicating that the economy is still weak. Forecasters anticipate that the state's unemployment rate will continue to rise from its current rate of 11.6%, which is among the highest in the nation. This continued weakness in the state economy means that General Fund revenues will most likely underperform the level assumed in the recently passed State Budget. The next formal assessment of state revenues is scheduled for November 2009 when the Legislative Analyst's Office will release its five-year forecast of the state's economy and Budget outlook. Apart from the revenue risks, the state's revised 2009 Budget Act also presents significant expenditure risks. The Budget contains numerous assumptions regarding the sale of state assets, the receipt of federal funds to offset state cuts, expenditure reductions in the state's corrections system and other state programs, and the diversion of revenues from local governments and redevelopment agencies that all must be realized in order for the Budget to remain in balance. If any of these assumptions should prove false, then Budget deficits would soon emerge. Finally, the 2009-10 Budget contains numerous one-time solutions that will put pressure on future Budgets even if the state economy turns around and revenue growth resumes. The loss of these one-time solutions (i.e., limited term tax increases, accounting shifts, deferred state payroll payment, and others) will present challenges for the State for several years to come. Proposition 98 and the federal maintenance of effort requirements under ARRA should provide the community colleges with some protection; however, a significant drop in state revenues could open the door to additional cuts We may see another round of Budget adjustments in January 2010 or maybe sooner. Of one thing we can be confident: we need to plan conservatively, as the State's fiscal crisis is nowhere near over. At the Statewide Budget Workshop on August 21, we will receive the detail budget information for Mendocino College.

Registration was in progress while I was present. The staff commented concerning the new computer system. It is working quite well in regards to daily business and the registration process. The counselor stated she was having very busy days signing students for the Fall Semester. Janet Chaniot In July I received a call from, and participated in, Mike Thompson’s phone conference. 10,000 were on the line, and Representative Thompson fielded questions from about 15 callers. Those of us who were “in the queue” at the end of the hour-long call were asked to leave our questions with the staff. My question concerned the differences in community college support that are likely to result from the new emphasis placed on the system by President Obama and the Congress. I have not yet received a response from Rep. Thompson. Joan, Gwen, Kathy, and I worked on the dinner for Wade that will be held Friday, August 7, at the Walter Café. As of this writing, there will be 34 attending, and Wade will receive a commemorative plate created by Jan Hoyman, a resolution honoring his service, a gift certificate from the Board, and any ‘white elephant’ gifts and/or ‘roasts’ those who were invited wish to offer him. The notes below are from the CCCT meeting in June and were posted by Scott Lay: INFORMATION TO SHARE WITH YOUR REGIONS - Student Success: The CCCT board has identified student success as its underlying theme for this year. At the September meeting, the board will have a study session to explore current trends in student success, state and national efforts to address performance, and the role of state policy in the bilaterally governed California community colleges. - Accreditation: The board heard an update on accreditation issues facing colleges, and learned that Chancellor Jack Scott is creating a task force on Accreditation. The board encourages local trustees to ask their district CEOs to forward their names to the Accrediting Commission to serve on visiting teams. Trustees serving on visiting teams bring a unique perspective to the accreditation review of peer institutions, and also bring back important insight for their own district's accreditation process. - Physical education and recreational classes: While we have successfully defeated a proposed reduction in funding for physical education courses, trustees must monitor local college offerings to ensure that taxpayer funding is being best used during these challenging times. In particular, open- entry/open-exit classes for community members may be more justifiably offered as community service courses with the enrollees bearing a larger share of the cost. - Textbook Affordability: The CCCT board continues to evaluate legislation that seeks to address the issue of textbook affordability for our students. The board took a "watch" position on AB 317 (Solorio) which would require each faculty member or academic department to provide the http://www.collegeopentextbooks.org web site address to students. While the board is concerned about more mandates from Sacramento during these difficult fiscal times, it believes that colleges should voluntarily provide this information to students, and encourages trustees to be supportive of the effort. - Student Assessment: The board received a report by the Assessment Action Plan Group, which was convened by interim Chancellor Diane Woodruff to address the System's Strategic Plan and a report by the Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO) (http://www.lao.ca.gov/2008/edu/ccc_readiness/ccc_readiness_0608.aspx). While many of the recommendations in the report may not be feasible in the current budgetary environment, CCCT board members encourage trustees to review the LAO's report and support local efforts to improve student readiness.
