Meeting Details: Wednesday November 4, 2015, Northwood and High Building, Started X:XX PM and Ended X:XX PM  (No quorum)

  1. We did not achieve a quorum so no official meeting took place and the proposed agenda was not taken up.
  2. For those members who were able to attend the discussion focused on UAC elections which were going on that evening and being supported by many of the Governance members.
  3. The focus was on the possible election rule changes that may be requested by the election committee during their final report to the Commission at the November meeting.
    • Areas Governance was asked to consider:
      • Document the election process
      • Clarify the rules that a write in candidate must follow
      • Survey candidates from the current and the previous year or two in order to find out what they liked, disliked and found confusing about the process.
        • This survey should include anyone who ran as a write in candidate.

Next meeting is December 2, 2015 at 6:00 PM in Room 100 of the Northwood & High Building
