• Athletic Board Response
Jackie Hank provided ASEC with an overview of the structure of the Athletic Board, especially the Personnel Committee. The Athletic Board agreed that they would follow the policy regarding the selection of coaches written and approved by the Athletic Board several years earlier. This policy was not vetted by any governance groups. Jackie stated that the Athletic Board will ratify the final decision, but a smaller group would be involved in the selection process. ASEC expressed concerns about the Athletic Board having more power over the way the smaller group involved in the selection is formed. ASEC agreed to revisit this issue in January.
• Assembly Meeting Discussion
Heather M. reminded ASEC that their recommendation about holding the January Assembly meeting would be made on Thursday. Concerns were expressed both about participation and respectful behavior in Assembly meetings. There was discussion about adding information to the ASEC highlights document, and also about passing a resolution regarding a committee to oversee activity-based funding.
Meeting adjourned at 2:22 p.m.
