I.          Welcome and Call to Order                 

Having determined a quorum present of the Board of Trustees and the University of Louisville Athletic Association Board of Directors, University of Louisville Board of Trustees Chair Porter called the meeting to order at 1:30 p.m.  

            Approval of Minutes :

Mr. Frazier made a motion, which Ms. Snowden seconded, to approve the Board of Trustees minutes of July 13, 2006.  The motion passed unanimously. 

Mr. Gahm made a motion, which Prof. Wise seconded, to approve the UofL Athletic Association Board of Directors minutes of July 13, 2006.  The motion passed unanimously. 

II.         Briefing and Action on Proposed Louisville Arena        

Vice President Jurich reviewed the elements of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Louisville Arena Authority and the University of Louisville.  The agreement would, in its maturity, be beneficial to Cardinal Athletics.  As the Board’s Task Force on the Arena recommended, any arrangements with the arena authority had to extend beyond the status quo arrangement with KFEC.  Mr. Jurich asserted this agreement met the requirements of the Task Force report.

  1. Questions from Board Members

 

There were no questions from board members.  They were addressed during Mr. Jurich’s explanation of the elements of the memorandum.

            Mr. Porter then asked Dr. Ramsey to petition the Athletic Association Board to approve the University’s participation in the Memorandum of understanding with the Louisville Arena Authority.  Prof. Byers made a motion, which Prof. Wise seconded to approve the

Chair’s recommendation that:

The Board of Directors approve the Memorandum of Understanding in substantially the form as attached hereto; and

The Board also authorize the President or his designee to execute any and all subsequent documents consistent with the terms of this Memorandum of Understanding.

The motion passed unanimously. 

            Subsequently, Trustee Chair Porter asked the Board of Trustees members to approve the University’s participation in the Memorandum of Understanding with the Louisville Arena Authority and to designate President Ramsey or his designee to authorize all future agreements with the Arena Authority.  Ms. Loving made a motion, which Mr. Stone seconded, to approve the

Chair’s recommendation that:

The Board of Trustees approve the Memorandum of Understanding in substantially the form as attached hereto; and

The Board also authorize the President or his designee to execute any and all subsequent documents consistent with the terms of this Memorandum of Understanding.

 

The motion passed with Mr. Bridgeman abstaining.  Mr. Bridgeman is a member of the Louisville Arena Authority.
 
            There being no further business to conduct, Mr. Porter asked for a motion to adjourn.

IV.       Adjournment

            Mr. Porter thanked everyone for attending.  The meeting adjourned at 2:30 p.m.
