The college governance committees are well underway this fall. With the November focus on everyone’s mind, the committees are keeping up with their work and moving forward into an uncertain future.
Please remember that all governance meetings are open to all members of the campus community; you are always invited to attend.
At the last BC meeting, the budget for 12-13 was reviewed and adopted. The BC will have to look at the budget again following the election and the outcome of proposition 30. BC discussed the impact to college finances in each of the scenarios if the proposition passes or fails. They continued a discussion from last term about increasing the committee membership by adding a second constituency representative from each group. This change of committee membership will be on the agenda at the next meeting.
BC will create the annual budget plan in October.
