The Employee Council meeting went on as scheduled this 20th day of October. 

The meeting was called to order by Helen Norfleet-Shiflett, council co-chair.

Linda Way-Smith and Anne Broccoli from Benefits were the guest speakers.

Linda Way-Smith and Anne Broccoli began the meeting by discussing health insurance open enrollment.  October 31, 2005 - December 2, 2005 is open enrollment.  If you are changing health plans from the high to low premium or low to high premium you will need to make sure you complete a new application and send it in to Benefits by December 2, 2005 at 5:00pm.  If you are not changing health plans you do not need to send in anything.  To find out more information about open enrollment and the new rates go to http://www.hrs.virginia.edu/openenroll.html.
