Vanden Heuvel Absent: L. Osegueda, A. Sevetson, P. Stewart Guests: R. Heckart, A. Mitchell, C. Wanat Announcements: A. R. Heckart, chair of the Distinguished Librarian Award committee, presented the 1992 honoree Camille Wanat to the Executive Committee. He reminded the Committee that the ceremony will be held November 24, 1992 in the Morrison Room around 4:15 or 4:30 p.m. B. G. Handman announced that the LAUC-B Fall Assembly will be November 18 from 8:30 - 10:00 a.m. and that the Statewide Assembly will be held December 4, hosted by the San Francisco campus. C. The Executive Committee approved the following nominees to Statewide committees: Ad hoc Task Force of Electronic Publishing -- Joe Barker Committee on Cultural Diversity -- Lillian Castillo-Speed Committee on Library Plans and Policies -- Chuck Eckman Committee on Professional Governance - Bill Whitson Ongoing Business: A. G. Handman reviewed the charge to the LAUC-B task force to develop guidelines for timetable extension. He has received comments from Roberta Aasen concerning the PEER REVIEW TIMETABLE COMPLIANCE recommendations: she expressed concerns about workload issues, but was generally supportive. The draft document will be distributed shortly to the LAUC-B constituency for their comment. B. Discussion continued around the Distinguished Librarian Award, its policies and process. The Secretary has reviewed past minutes and found no decision had been reached as to the frequency of the award. G. Peete moved that the Distinguished Librarian Award be granted in 1993/94 (i.e. not this year), and that a task force be appointed to review existing criteria and other issues, including the frequency of the award and the issues related to confidentiality of supporting documentation. The motion was seconded by W. Diamond. After discussion the motion passed. C. D. Gregor has indicated that she has not had time to thoroughly review the proposed LAUC-B recommendations concerning upward evaluation of supervisors (strategic planning efforts have been given a higher priority). Dorothy stressed her intent to offer comments and revisions of this document in the near future. D. G.Handman announced that both he and G. Peete were appointed to the "core group" which will review/oversee the strategic planning process. The Executive Committee recommended that W. Diamond represent LAUC-B's interest on the Library Culture work group. E. Byrne and R. Moon are on other work groups, so the Executive Committee can be kept current through their perspectives. Approval of Minutes: The August 1992 minutes were approved with minor changes. New Business: A. G. Handman applauded the work of the Nominating & Elections Committee in producing the "Committee Service Opportunities for Members of LAUC-B." It has generated a lot of interest from the membership. A. Mitchell announced that Janice Burrows has offered to host a workshop for committee chairs in mid-November. LAUC-B agreed to co-sponsor the program; G.Handman will ask the new Program Committee Chair to contact J. Burrows. B. The Executive Committee met in closed session to discuss nominations for LAUC-B Committees.
