Two Board of Regents committees and committee chairs to meet Nov. 19

TBR Finance & Business Operations Committee meets April 23

Two committees of the Tennessee Board of Regents and the chairs of the board’s six standing committees will meet Tuesday, Nov. 19, to consider and review a number of items in advance of the board’s next quarterly meeting in December.

The Audit Committee will meet at 10 a.m., followed consecutively by meetings of the Personnel and Compensation Committee and the committee chairs. The meetings will be held in the board room at the TBR system office, 1 Bridgestone Park, Nashville, TN 37214.

The Audit Committee’s agenda includes informational review of recent audit reports and revisions to audit plans for Fiscal Year 2020. At the conclusion of the public portion of the meeting, the Audit Committee will convene a non-public executive session to review audit issues that are confidential under Tennessee law until final reports are issued. Audit Committee materials are posted on the TBR website at

The Personnel and Compensation Committee is meeting to consider institutional compensation plan proposals from eight colleges, under a provision in the systemwide compensation plan approved by the board in June that permits colleges to submit proposals for salary adjustments for board approval. Whatever the committee recommends will be considered by the full board at its meeting next month.

The meeting of the committee chairs is primarily to preview and plan agenda items for the board’s next quarterly meeting, Dec. 12, including a revised budget and finance update and a proposed new policy on learning supports at the colleges of applied technology. 

The meetings are open to the public, except for the Audit Committee’s executive session. Contact Board Secretary Sonja Mason at or 615-366-3927 by 4:30 p.m. Nov. 18  to facilitate security access or to request accommodations.
