AUGUSTA, Maine — The Board of Trustees of the Maine Community College System (MCCS) will hold a regularly-scheduled meeting next Wednesday, June 30, 2004 at York County Community College in Wells. The meeting will be held in Room B107 at 11:15 a.m. (Agenda below)

Several human resource items are on the agenda, including: resolutions to approve negotiated two-year contracts with the Maine Education Association (MEA) Faculty and Administrators bargaining units; a resolution addressing compensation for regular employees; and one establishing a process for the System President's annual performance appraisal. The System has five bargaining units; contracts with the other three concluded earlier this year.

The compensation adjustment negotiated in the MEA contract and proposed for regular employees for the 2004/2005 fiscal year mirrors the three other negotiated contracts. They include a two percent one-time stipend and an Employee Appreciation Day (one personal day of leave) in recognition of employees' efforts to support the colleges' transition from technical to community colleges.

Trustees are also expected to elect the Chair and Vice Chair of the Board for the 2004-2005 academic year. The agenda also includes a number of housekeeping measures, including updates to the MCCS Strategic Plan, Academic Inventory, and several System policies.
