A0107 Board Members' Obligation and Attendance


‚ÄčAll members of the Board are expected to attend all official meetings of the Board to discuss items presented on the agenda, to suggest other items for consideration prior to publication, and to vote upon motions and resolutions presented. Board members are expected to attend a minimum of 75 percent of all regular monthly and special Board meetings. Special Board meetings are those meetings of the whole Board at which action may legally be taken or will subsequently result in action being legally taken. Absences should be reported to the Board Chairperson or President in advance. In addition, Board members may be requested to serve on Board committees and special task forces.  If there is a concern regarding a member's attendance, the Board Chair will meet with the specific member to share the concern and to develop a plan to improve attendance.

Official decisions of the Board shall be made at duly constituted Board meetings. Individual board members or groups of board members do not have independent authority to speak out or act on behalf of the Board. Board members represent the entire Western Technical College District and should not subordinate the education of students or management of the District to any partisan principle, agenda, group interest, nor personal ambition.

In addition to the foregoing, board members shall conform to the Code of Ethics (Reference Policy A0106).
