Trustees meet Jan. 28, elect new officers

Jan. 26, 2000

KALAMAZOO -- The election of new officers to lead the Western Michigan University Board of Trustees in 2000 tops the agenda when the board meets Friday, Jan. 28.

Meeting in the Connable Board Room of WMU's Bernhard Center at 11 a.m., trustees also will hear gift and grant reports for the months of November and December and reports detailing recent personnel activity on campus.

In addition, the board will consider a lease agreement with the Kalamazoo County Chamber of Commerce, a resolution to appoint an external auditor for 1999-2000 and a resolution to accept transfer to the University of the Chamber of Commerce's current agreement with the federal government to assist small businesses in their efforts to obtain government contracts. The chamber's Southwest Michigan Technical Assistance Center for Kalamazoo County, which offers that assistance, became part of the University in October.

Board committee meetings will precede the full board meeting. They will be held in Room 204 of the Bernhard Center at the following times: Budget and Finance Committee at 9:30 a.m. and Academic and Student Affairs Committee at 10 a.m. All meetings are open to the public.
