1.16 Telephone Meetings Policy

The Board may hold a meeting with all or a majority of the trustees participating by telephone. Such telephone meetings shall be open to the public. Trustees may cast votes other than roll call votes at a telephone meeting. However, issues that require a roll call vote, including issues to be discussed and decided in closed session, may not be voted on at a telephone meeting. The College President will arrange for the meeting to take place in a location with the appropriate equipment so that Board members participating in the meeting by telephone may interact and the public may observe or hear the comments made. The College President will take measures to verify the identity of any remotely located participants.
