Decision-Making vs. Making Guacamole


Note to reader: this Tid Bit may look familiar; it has been revived for your reading pleasure.

First order of business:

Attending governance meetings:
A good place to start is by visiting the NEW page that has been added to the Governance website “Scheduled Meetings” – there you will find dates of scheduled governance meetings, check it out!
If you need more information, please contact the chairperson. The Blue List includes email links to each committee chairperson.

Ok, now for more fun stuff!

Where can I find out what happened at a governance committee?
Go to the “Governance Update” link:
The Governance Update is a report that includes the actions taken by various governance committees.

Actions include motions made and reports of tasks the committee has or will complete.
These actions have been compiled into a report and approved by the Campus Executive Committee. It is required by Administrative Regulation 2511, the Governance Document.

Any questions regarding items listed contact the chair of the appropriate committee. Items reported may have changed or been resolved during a more recent meeting than the date noted.

Minutes posted online have been reviewed by their respective standing committee.
To view committee minutes in their entirety please visit the committee "MINUTES" link (Located in SharePoint, sign in with your email – do this only once on your computer for unlimited access).

Wait! On the latest ‘Governance Update” the actions of a meeting are not listed; why is this?
It may be due to the fact that the minutes and motions have not been reported yet. It could also be that the report of all governance committees is pending College Executive Committee review.

Now, for the part on guacamole... this process is not so regimented. You’ve decided to make guacamole. The next step is to gather fresh ingredients and mash them all together for a tasty treat. Done. I’d like to share a favorite, quick recipe for fresh guacamole. Enjoy!


1-2 avocados, scoop into your serving bowl; save the seed
1 roma tomato, diced
1 serrano chili, seeded and minced (use only the amount you desire for a bit of fire or a lot)
Pinch of salt and pepper
Garlic clove, minced
Squeeze lime juice – not too much, just a hint of taste
Optional additions: cilantro leaves, Worcestershire sauce, teaspoon of mayonnaise (yes, it truly enhances the guac)

Mash the avocado with a fork. Fold in the tomato, garlic, serrano chili, salt, pepper, in a bowl and mix. Squeeze lime juice for a hint of taste. Serve immediately with your favorite corn chips.

To store, place avocado pit in the bowl with the guacamole, to keep it from discoloring and then cover with plastic wrap, press the wrap down to the surface of the guacamole and store in the refrigerator.
