Item 3

Welcome and Introduction of New Board Members
Chad Campbell, President

The BATC Board of Directors and Administration are pleased to welcome Nini Anderson and Neil Perkes as new Board members. In accordance with Utah Code, all new Board members representing education are to be appointed by their respective appointing authorities.  (Title 53B, 2a, 109 (2) “The original appointing authority shall fill any vacancies that occur on the College Board of Directors.”) Nini represents Box Elder School District and will be replacing Carrie Ann Johnson as an educational representative. Neil is the Nursing Administrator for Logan Regional Hospital and will be representing the health care sector on the Board as a business and industry representative. Both of the new Board members will be invited to take a few minutes to introduce themselves so we can all get to know them better. A brief introduction of the other Board members along with the Administrative staff also seems prudent.

ACTION: Information item/pleasure of the Board.

Item 4

Cache County School District (CCSD), Cache High School Relocation, and Logan City 12th North Easement
Mike Liechty, CCSD Deputy Superintendent
As part of Cache County School District’s effort to relocate Cache High School from its current location (on 1400 North) to be immediately adjacent to BATC’s south parking lot, BATC and the Cache County School District have been asked by Logan City to provide a roadway easement between the two properties. Mike Liechty and Lance Anderson, representing Cache County School District, will be present at the meeting to explain their future construction project, along with describing the need for the roadway easement.

This request for an easement was discussed and approved during the April 20, 2015, Board meeting. Since the title to this property technically rests with the Utah College of Applied Technology, it seems prudent to have the BATC Board of Directors reapprove the easement and forward the request on to UCAT for Board of Trustees approval. The next Trustees meeting is scheduled for September 14, 2016. By approving the easement request in this meeting, it can be forwarded to UCAT in sufficient time for their next meeting agenda.

ACTION: Recommend approval of a Cache County School District Easement for the Technology High School.

Item 5

Training on Open Meeting Laws for the State of Utah
Doug Richards, Assistant Attorney General
Doug Richards, Assistant Attorney General, will be present at the Board meeting to provide required training on the Open and Public Meeting Laws for the State of Utah. Doug, among other duties and responsibilities, is assigned to UCAT and the respective UCAT colleges to provide legal counsel on an as needed basis. Doug is systematically meeting with the UCAT Board of Trustees, along with each of the respective Boards of Directors, to provide this required training. His presentation is designed to take about 15 minutes.

ACTION:  Information item/pleasure of the Board.

Item 6

BATC Governing Authority – Election of Officers
Mike Madsen & Scott Theurer
During the June 20, 2016, Board Meeting, Policy #103 “BATC Governing Authority,” was updated to include a section on the election of board officers.

In accordance with Policy #103, the nominating committee will nominate candidate(s) and will then declare it open for any further nominations.
