With elections taking place before the next meeting, Kathy Stopczynski wanted to take a moment to thank all of the SAC members for their hard work and commitment to SAC during 2006.


  • Employee survey

A question was asked about the results of the employee survey, ND Voice.  The results of the survey are expected to be delivered to Human Resources from the survey company, ISR at the end of January or beginning of February.  Once they are received, the staff in Human Resources will need to organize the data in a way that is easy to communicate.  Once HR has a sense about the magnitude of this project, they will begin to communicate the results, probably in the March timeframe.
