A meeting of the ad hoc Emeritus Trustee Committee of the Board of Trustees of Northern Michigan University was held on Thursday, December 13, 2007.  It was convened by

Chair Gibert L. Ziegler at 4:00 p.m.  Participating were: 


            Gilbert L. Ziegler, Chair                                                                    

Robert O Berube, Emeritus

The ad hoc Committee discussed opportunities to get Trustee Emeriti and past Trustees more involved with NMU.  The Committee recommends using the July 2008 Board meeting as an initial joint meeting with current Trustees and Trustee Emeriti.  An evening dinner event would include all current and past Trustees.  Similar meetings would be held at subsequent July Board of Trustees meetings.  This will be a topic of discussion at the February Strategy Session.


Mr. Ziegler adjourned the meeting at 4:30 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,




Gilbert L. Ziegler, Chair
