IV. Other Business
Future Committee Meeting Dates
Chair Cauble asked committee members to consider preferred meeting dates; staff will survey committee members in early February to schedule the March committee meetings. Ms. Smith offered the possibility of trustees connecting via teleconference for any committee meetings they wished to participate in. She further noted that preliminary and draft advisory minutes will be circulated 48 hours after committee meetings. Mr. Owens stated his preference for committee meetings to be held on separate days and he thoroughly appreciated the format of this committee meeting.
In response to Chair Cauble's suggestion for alternate meeting venues, Ms. Smith noted with the committees comprising smaller groups, it is easier to change the meeting venues and adjust to specific interests of committee members.
Ms. Smith indicated that the consent agenda for the regular board meetings might be modified to accommodate committee chair reports detailing the actions of the committees. This procedure would allow the committees to share their work with the full board.
In response to Chair Cauble's inquiry, Provost Garrison stated the QCCT board met in December; Ms. Smith noted that Vice President Owsley was re-elected as chair. Ms. Smith will schedule Mr. Owsley for a report to the Board at its next meeting.
There being no further business to discuss, Ms. Shuter made a motion, which Ms. Worland seconded, to adjourn the meeting at 1:10 p.m.
