Article III: Meetings

Regular Meetings

Section 13: The Trustees shall hold at least three regular meetings each year. One shall be in the autumn, one in the winter and one in the spring, on such date and at such time as is stated in the notice of the meeting. Any and all business may be transacted at regular meetings.

Special Meetings

Section 14: Special meetings may be held at any time and at any place upon the call of the Chair of the Board of Trustees or the Executive Committee, or upon the written application of three members of the Board. The notice of any special meeting shall state the items of business for which the meeting is held and no business shall be done except that stated in the notice.

Notice of Meetings

Section 15: A written, printed or electronic notice of every regular meeting of the Board of Trustees shall be given by the Secretary of the College to each Trustee at least seven days before the meeting. In the case of a special meeting, three days notice shall suffice, unless the Chair of the Board or the President determines that circumstances warrant shorter notice, which in no event shall be less than twenty-four hours. Notice may also be given by the President, the Chair of the Board of Trustees or any two Trustees. Any trustee who attends a meeting shall be deemed to have received adequate notice of such meeting.

Presence Through Communications Equipment

Section 16: Members of the Board of Trustees may participate in a meeting of the Board by means of a telephone or video conference or similar communications equipment provided that all persons participating in the meeting can hear each other at the same time. Participation by such means shall constitute presence in person at a meeting. The same procedure may be followed for committee meetings.

Quorum; Voting

Section 17: A majority of the Trustees then in office must be present at a meeting in order to constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. A majority of those present, although less than a quorum, shall have the power to adjourn the meeting from time to time, and such meeting may be held as adjourned without further notice.

Each Trustee shall have one vote. Except as otherwise specifically required by law, the articles of organization or these bylaws, a majority vote of the Trustees present in person or duly represented shall be sufficient to authorize any action of the College provided a quorum is present.

Action by Written Consent

Section 18: Except as specifically required in these bylaws, any action required or permitted to be taken at any meeting of the Trustees or of any committee may be taken without a meeting if all Trustees or committee members, as the case may be, entitled to vote on the matter consent to the action in writing and the written consents are filed with the records of the meetings of the Trustees or committee, as the case may be. Electronic mail, for the purposes of this bylaw, satisfies the requirement of a writing. Such consents shall be treated for all purposes as a vote at a meeting.
