All representatives are encouraged to appoint a proxy if they are unable to attend meetings.
Attendance at all committee meetings is mandatory. When a member of a campus governance committee will be absent, the member should make every effort to assign a proxy who will attend the meeting on the absent member's behalf.
Not attending may contribute to quorum challenges and is a disservice to your constituent group.
The committee chair and minutes recorder should be given notice that a proxy will be in attendance.
For your convenience a form is available online: Governance Committee Proxy Form
If unable to fill out the proxy form, please, please email the committee chair, the minutes recorder, or the governance office notice of your proxy. The bottom line is, please communicate that you are sending a proxy and have your proxy introduce themselves to the chair and minutes recorders.
Thank you! Your cooperation helps to ensure that governance runs smoothly.
