Chad Triggs
40:49
Good Morning Everyone! Chad Triggs, Accokeek Academy!
Phixavier Holmes
42:30
Good morning everyone! Phixavier Holmes Prince Georges County Public Schools!
Sarah Porter
44:44
I would not be attending in person. Virtual would be amazing!
Julie Arner (she/her)
45:08
At this point, I wouldn’t attend in person but would if it was virtual.
Sarah Porter
45:18
Agree
Megan H
45:29
I would not attend in person at this point
Alexis Pappadeas
45:34
I do feel that virtual reaches more people, especially in these circumstances. I am worried about upcoming in-person events.
Allie Downey
45:56
Thank you everyone for input.
Allie Downey
46:05
And shorter. :)
Sharon Grimes
48:07
For the gala would non membership individuals be allowed to come?
Sharon Grimes
48:25
Sounds good!! Thank you!!
Allie Downey
48:28
It's a great date night!
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
48:45
Information about Committees, including the Mentoring Committee just referenced: https://www.mscaonline.org/about-us/committee-members
Xiomara Medina
48:48
definitely a good opportunity to get dressed up and celebrate all of ou hard work
Kathleen Klecan
51:42
It looks like the next Mentor Committee meeting is Thursday, January 20th but the time is wrong on the calendar. We usually meet at 7 or 7:30.
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
53:03
If you are interested in joining a committee or even just learning more about it, please don't hesitate to reach out to the Committee Chair/Co-Chair! https://www.mscaonline.org/about-us/committee-members
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
53:42
Secretary and Treasurer were just elected
Sarah Porter
55:12
Just a thought~ maybe could align all positions to have elections same for all. Or what is the reason for having odd and even years as opposed to the same ?
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
56:09
That's a great thought, Sarah! I do believe it is to ensure we have Board members in positions instead of all in flux.
Sarah Porter
56:30
Also do you have to be currently working to serve as a an officer or on the board?
Maureen Ponce
56:31
Mentoring Committee meets the 4th Thursday of each month from 7:30 to 8:30. Email me at mponce@mscaonline or presidentelect@mscaonline.org to get involved.
Phixavier Holmes
56:42
I agree with Sarah, this would allow the entire executive board to transition at one time
Maureen Ponce
57:15
Next meeting is January 27, 2022 for Mentoring Committee
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
57:30
You typically do not need to be working to serve as a Committee Chair, just a member. You do need to serve in your level to serve as an elected level Board member.

any member in good standing can vote and make motions
Nikki Ham
01:06:15
Absolutely you are a member
Sarah Porter
01:07:00
Cool
Xiomara Medina
01:07:33
Committee chairs and regional reps are appointed
Xiomara Medina
01:07:40
The others are elected by menbership
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:07:54
Appointed is in reference to Regional Representatives and Committees. Elected are Executive Board members elected by the MSCA General Body.
Sarah Porter
01:08:43
I’m not sure the right time but I would like to bring a motion to change the election dates to align all positions to the same year.

01:11:55
Agreed!
Sarah Porter
01:12:37
That does make sense. Having continuity does make sense.
Maureen Ponce
01:12:44
We would lose institutional knowledge if everyone is brand new at the same time.
Tracey Spain
01:13:05
I agree. I don’t think we want everyone being new at the same time. I am a member of another organization and we alternate years of elections for positions as well.
Sarah Porter
01:13:09
Thank you for that clarification.
Terri S
01:13:19
Agreed. Institutional knowledge is critical.
Phixavier Holmes
01:13:35
That does make sense. I would then also question if with certain roles the criteria changes so everyone isn’t “brand new” and learning the role

I think that is a good ide

I agree
Xiomara Medina
01:25:03
it locks us in if we say it will happen at the conference
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:25:39
Exactly. It's easiest to vote at the Conference, but it does tie us to an event vs. time fo year
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:25:41
of*
Allie Downey
01:27:38
Nomination process will begin in January followed by the voting election to be completed by the end of April.
Sarah Porter
01:28:22
Makes sense.
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:28:25
Since we need to give people time to nominate, apply, and hold elections.
Xiomara Medina
01:29:15
I think “with election process completed by 4/30"
Xiomara Medina
01:29:20
?
Allie Downey
01:29:46
“Nomination process will begin in January with election held and completed by the end of April 30.”
Sarah Porter
01:30:02
Could we change the next sentence to say that voting will be conducted electronically whether a meeting is in person or not?
Allie Downey
01:30:04
Nomination process will begin in January with election held and completed by April 30
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:30:06
I imagine that would be under Special Elections
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:30:11
That specific case
Phixavier Holmes
01:30:42
I have to leave for another meeting at 10am. Thank you for your service and I will follow up later abs reas the notes.
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:31:17
Sounds good to me
Nikki Ham
01:31:24
Thank you so much Phixavier. Have a great day. We will continue to keep you posted.

Unless there is a sickness or other issue. How about the president in addition to 2 additional board me,Byers.
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:36:28
Any position vacant after July 1st will be appointed by the President, together with the Past President and President Elect.
Atiya Smith
01:37:05
Love that
Shawnta Leftwich
01:37:13
I would like to suggest the appointment comes from the emerging leaders
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:37:28
Any position vacant after July 1st will be appointed by the President, together with the Past President and President Elect.
Allie Downey

Any position vacant after July 1st will be appointed by the President, together with the immediate Past President and President Elect. If there is an occasion in which these members are not available, a ⅔ majority of the executive board will be required.
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:40:56
This sounds good to me, Allie.
Atiya Smith
01:41:51
I agree with both points Shawnta.
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:42:21
Everyone is learning as they go in these positions, including me, and I've been very actively involved since 2018!
Sarah Porter
01:42:27
Agree with the motion as written; Allie
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:42:30
So, no worries, Shawnta :)
Shawnta Leftwich
01:42:47
Thank you Marian 🙂
Sarah Porter
01:43:12
I would like to call the vote 😀
Allie Downey
01:43:14
Don't move!
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:43:32
As Xiomara mentioned, we want language to be concise and thorough, but not so rigid that there is no room for flexibility.

Atiya Smith
01:52:18
Great point!
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
01:54:42
I speak as someone who was very active and not appointed, to holding an appointed position, to becoming an elected position.

Nikki Ham
01:59:09
Allie, yes
Leslie Schnebly
02:00:28
Is the grad level rep elected?
Allie Downey
02:00:41
The Executive Board shall be composed of the elected positions for the following positions: president, president-elect, secretary, treasurer, immediate past president, the four level vice-presidents (elementary, middle, secondary, and post secondary), the membership chair and webmaster.

Shouldn't Independent Schools be in the Representative category versus committee?
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
02:13:10
That is currently how the role functions. We should update it in By-Laws.

Great job Laura and team. This is how we grow in a great direction.
Allie Downey

Notes should be accurate but everyone please take a look and make sure I didn't miss something!

Please send me pictures that week for social media!

02:24:07
Please make sure your email (and membership information including address) is updated and accurate on your profile! It's very easy to type .ogr vs. .org or leave out a letter in an address, which means your gifts would not reach you.
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
02:25:09
We have had both of these exact situations happen, so I want to encourage everyone to double check. We want to make sure your giftogram reaches you after such a hard year!

If we have time, I would like to revisit discussion about Membership Chair. Currently, Bill and I Co-Chair this committee, as there is quite a bit to do, but the By-Laws currently reflect one individual in this role. In the past, this has not been a problem, but this will now be an elected position and one that is stipended, so I want to be clear and transparent about this role!
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
02:40:57
Yes, absolutely. I think the pandemic had more of an effect than the discount.
Nikki Ham
02:41:10
Marian this is a great suggestion. This would be a request to make a change to the By-Laws. Laura as the chair of the By-Laws would present this requested change and then we would need to make a motion and vote.
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
02:41:37
Yes, definitely, Nikki!
Allie Downey
02:42:40
We also need to discuss holding two elected positions.
Alexis Thompson
02:44:05
Can we include a discount code to share with non-public schools?

Laura mentioned that the path to licensure was very well attended. 90 ppl i believe she said
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
02:53:50
I can send it to Level and Regional reps too.
Atiya Smith

Look at your local school board website and see what work groups they may have. Ask your school board if they workgroups
Nikki Ham
03:03:53
Lana, you can also locate your local county council to see if they have a commission or workgroup you can serve

@Allie I see the SCChat seems to be really popular. maybe we can have someone host one for us. I can ask Brian Coleman or Laura Ross. Or if we know someone else who does twitter better than most of us lol

Plus Marian is already in an elected position
Allie Downey
03:26:44
You would be appointed
Marian Hoyt- Secondary VP (she/her)
03:27:42
The two elected positions is the bigger conversation. One position for each position makes sense. I was thinking about it more because I am Co-Chair currently, but that wouldn't be applicable in the future.
