Heather Dimwich and all of the other news media reads whats on the paper, they fail to read whats between the lines. Sure, they can vote on tuition, but that’s not all they are talking/voting on I promise you. No BOT suddenly calls a meeting just to vote on tuition give me a break.
Anyone believing this is an “ordinary” meeting is out of their mind. Straight from the BoT bylaws:
1. Regular Meetings
There shall be four regular, quarterly meetings of the Board, normally in January, April, July and October. The July meeting will be the Annual Meeting. The day, time and place shall be determined by the Chair of the Board.
Last I checked it was May.
2. Special Meetings
It shall be the duty of the Chair of the Board (or the Vice Chair in the absence of the Chair) to call a special meeting of the Board whenever it shall be deemed necessary or upon the written request of five Trustees. In the latter case, said meeting shall be held within ten days of receipt of the five written requests or on a date agreeable to the requesting Trustees.
Oh here we go, this is it.
You should also note this point:
5. Notice of Meetings
Written notice of all meetings of the Board shall be sent to each member of the Board at least five days prior to the date of the meeting. This requirement may be waived by unanimous consent.
Pretty sure it was announced yesterday and is being held today. I know I’m not a UNC grad but, to my knowledge that is only one days notice. So according to the bylaws, this meeting they are holding today was because of unanimous consent.
IMO, this meeting is to get everyone on the same page for moving to the Big 12. Maybe to even go ahead and vote on giving power to the president/AD to look at other conferences. I think there will be some more denying after the meeting for legal purposes, but we all know whats happening behind closed door. I hope I’m wrong about that last part and they come out guns blazing to tell the ACC we are leaving but thats wishful thinking right now. This is no ordinary meeting.
