1.02.010 Consent Agenda

Approved: 9/21/2009
Reaffirmed: 11/20/2012
Approved By: Board of Trustees

It is the desire of the Board of Trustees to have time available at each regularly scheduled meeting for strategic discussions on issues of interest to the College.  To facilitate this interest, the Board directs the use of a Consent Agenda for routine items coming before the Board.  Items placed on the Consent Agenda for a regular meeting of the Board will have been reviewed with the appropriate Committee and have the recommendation of the Committee for approval.  Examples of items for the consent agenda may include, but not be limited to, the routine payment of bills, actions required as the result of previous Board actions, actions required by collective bargaining agreements and/or other routine, non-controversial matters.

The items intended for inclusion in the Consent Agenda will be reviewed with the appropriate Committee, and the Committee may direct that selected items be placed on the regular action agenda.  Additionally, any item placed on the Consent Agenda may be removed to the regular agenda upon request by any member of the Board during an official meeting.  In such cases, the item will then be presented as part of the regular agenda with the recommendation from the appropriate Committee.  It will be discussed and action as appropriate will be taken.

The Consent Agenda will be presented for adoption as a single action item for action without discussion.  Minutes from the meeting will delineate the specific items included as part of the Consent Agenda.
