A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of Northern Michigan University was held on Friday, May 1, 2009. It was convened by Chair Brian D. Cloyd at 8:31 a.m.
Mr. Brian D. Cloyd, Chair Dr. Leslie E. Wong, President
Mr. Stephen F. Adamini Dr. Douglas B. Roberts (ex officio)
Mr. Jon G. LaSalle
The Committee discussed Dr. Wong’s salary, recommending an increase of 10% based on the past year’s performance bringing his total base salary to $204,225 per year. Dr. Wong expressed strong disagreement and submitted a letter to the Committee requesting that his salary be frozen at the current base due to economic conditions. The letter was submitted to formalize discussions since last December between Trustee Roberts, Trustee Cloyd and Dr. Wong. After further discussion, the Executive Committee agreed to accept the recommendation to freeze Dr. Wong’s salary and will make this recommendation to the full Board. The Executive Committee, on behalf of the Board, stated its strong support for Dr. Wong’s leadership and contribution to NMU.
Mr. Cloyd adjourned the meeting at 8:57 a.m.
Brian D. Cloyd, Chair
