BOT 12.01pr - Communication and Counsel to the Board : Procedure

This procedure explains the process for implementing Board policy BOT 12.0 Communication and Counsel to the Board.

The President has an obligation to ensure that the Board of Trustees is kept informed of critical issues and the overall operation of the college. 

The President will:

1. Provide the Board with a President’s Report at each Board business meeting.

2. Ensure the Board is aware of relevant trends, anticipated adverse media coverage, significant external and internal changes, particularly changes in the assumptions upon which any Board policy has previously been established.

3. Submit monitoring data requested by the Board in a clear, timely, and accurate fashion, directly addressing provisions of the Board policies being monitored.

4. Upon specific request of the Board, engage as many staff and external points of view, issues, and options as needed for fully informed Board choices.

5. Advise the Board if, in the President’s opinion, the Board is not in compliance with its own policies, particularly in the case of Board behaviors that may be detrimental to the working relationship between the Board and the President.

6. Provide a mechanism for official Board communication, including monthly informational packets as part of the regularly scheduled Board of Trustees meeting.
