Minutes of the Telephone Conference Call Meeting of February 25, 2009
The February 25, 2009 meeting of the Texas Woman’s University Board of Regents was called to order by its Chair at the appointed time and place. The Chair, Mr. Harry Crumpacker, Dr. William Fleming, Mr. Mike McCullough, Dr. Cecilia Moreno, Ms. Tegwin Pulley, and Mr. George Schrader were present by telephone, constituting a quorum.
The Secretary to the Board, Mr. Lawhon, began with the following: “I am John Lawhon, Secretary to the Board. The date is February 25, 2009 and the time is 9:02 a.m. This is a special called telephone conference call meeting of the Texas Woman’s University Board of Regents, immediate action being required and the convening at one location of a quorum of the governing board being difficult. The meeting is being held at the 16th Floor of the ACT building at TWU, the location where meetings of the governing board are normally held. This conference call is being recorded in the Board of Regents Room in Denton, as required by state law. Therefore, will each participant please identify yourself early in your remarks so that the record will reflect who is speaking. We will call the roll at this time to determine who is present on the telephone.” Responding that they were present were Regents Crumpacker, Fleming, McCullough, Moreno, Pulley, and Schrader.
Regent Crumpacker then said, “I call the Board of Regents meeting to order and note that a quorum is present.” Dr. Brenda Floyd, Vice President for Finance and Administration, explained that the original plans and provisions for the renovations of the only remaining three floors to be renovated in the MCL Building were approved some three years ago and that since that time additions have been made to the renovations and costs have increased, necessitating approval by the Board regarding the final maximum figures. Thereupon, Mr. Lawhon said, “The motion to be considered today is for approval to increase project costs from $2,481,721 to $5,000,000 for MCL renovations, this increase to come from Designated Tuition Fund Balance.”
Mr. Crumpacker asked, “Do I hear a motion to approve and a second?” After a motion to approve was made by Regent McCullough and seconded by Regent Schrader, the Chair said, “Is there any discussion?” Regent Schrader asked whether the increase was solely from inflation or whether it also involved additions to the project. Dr. Floyd replied that both are involved. There being no further discussion, the Chair said, “All in favor say ‘aye’,” upon which all Regents said “aye.” The Chair then said, “All opposed say ‘no’,” upon which no Regents said “no.” The Chair announced that the motion passed.
The Chair said, “There being no further business the meeting is adjourned.” The Chair then thanked the Regents for their participation.
