Executive Committee Executive Committee Charge

The Committee reviewed proposed changes to the Executive Committee Charge.  The Committee recommends these changes to the Board of Trustees.  This is part of the formal recommendations and does not require a vote.



Board of Trustees Budget
The Committee reviewed the Board of Trustees account expenditures to date for the 2010-2011 fiscal year.  The Committee agreed that the slight increase was acceptable due to the need to provide financial support for Board members attending an annual board conference.



Presidential Compensation

The Committee is recommending a 4% increase in compensation for President Wong for the current fiscal year.  This increase is in recognition for past performance as well as keeping the president’s compensation in line with peer positions.  Finally, the President has not received an increase since July 1, 2008.  This is not part of the formal recommendation and requires a motion and a vote.
