Tennessee Board of Regents committees to meet Aug. 29

Two committees of the Tennessee Board of Regents and the chairs of all the board’s committees will meet Tuesday, Aug. 29, to review a number of items in advance of the full board’s next quarterly meeting in September.

The Audit Committee will meet at 10 a.m., the Ad Hoc Committee on Committees will meet at 11:30 a.m., and the Committee Chairs will meet at 12:30 p.m., Aug. 29. The meetings will be held in Rooms 201-202-203 at the TBR system office at 1 Bridgestone Park, Nashville, Tenn., 37214.

The Audit Committee’s agenda includes informational reviews of recent audit reports issued by the state comptroller’s office and TBR audit staff. After the public portion of the meeting, the committee will move into a non-public executive session to discuss audit issues that are confidential under Tennessee law until final reports are issued.

The Ad Hoc Committee on Committees will consider proposed revisions to the charters of the Board’s External Affairs Committee and Workforce Development Committee and discuss general revisions to the Board’s bylaws.

The quarterly meeting of the chairs of all six of the Board’s committees is held primarily to review details of the agenda for the Board’s upcoming regular meeting, which is scheduled for Sept. 21-22 at Southwest Tennessee Community College in Memphis, and no votes are taken in the meeting. The Committee Chairs agenda includes status reports on searches for new presidents of the Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology at Crossville and Shelbyville and at Motlow State Community College and updates on dual enrollment, the TBR Shared Services Initiative and the Maxine Smith Fellows program.

All meetings are open to the public as observers, except for the Audit Committee’s executive session. Anyone wishing to attend should contact TBR communications director Richard Locker at 615-366-4417 or rick.locker@tbr.edu by 4:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 28, for security access.
