Friday, June 2, 2017
1-2 PM ET
Participants: Louisa Guthrie, Danielle Dyer, Susan Dentzer, Jamila Ma, Brendan Connell, Aly Jeddy, Stina Brock, Heiyab Tessema, Mabelle Hueston, Martha Beattie, Liz Nunez, Meg Ramsden, Amberlee Barbagallo
Louisa Guthrie opened the call and asked each participant to offer a brief introduction. She asked for a motion to approve the minutes of the March 14, 2017 annual meeting of the Association of Alumni (AoA). Susan Dentzer moved to approve the minutes and Danielle Dyer seconded. All approved.
Louisa indicated that the purpose of the call was to review the timeline for AoA and trustee candidate elections and to convene the nominating and balloting committees of the AoA.
The committee reviewed the timeline, highlighting the upcoming announcement of trustee vacancies after Commencement and discussed plans to notify all alumni of these vacancies and solicit nominations for trustee. The committee will vote to approve the timeline and notification methods.
It was noted that Louisa Guthrie will join the Alumni Council effective July 1, 2017 as the AoA representative.
Finally the committee discussed formation of the nominating and balloting committees. The nominating committee identifies and selects candidates for the AoA executive committee. The balloting committee oversees the election process, should an election be required. If the nominated candidates are not contested, an election does not need to be held, per the 2014 constitutional amendment. Meg Ramsden will follow up in writing to solicit volunteers for each committee.
The call was adjourned.
