You can address the Board of Trustees on Wednesday

If you take action today, you can address the Board of Trustees yourself on Wednesday. Ronnie Grant, Vice President for Organizing, has pulled together this excellent overview:

If you or someone from your chapter is attending the Board of Trustees meeting this week, here's the link to the meeting schedule:

The Board consists of 10 committees on Tuesday and Wednesday, ending with the plenary session at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday.

The Board is governed by the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act. You have the right to address the Board on any subject pertaining to the CSU. You also have the right to address any committee on any subject matter pertaining to that committee.

The CSU requires you to request to be added to the speakers list two days in advance. If you wish to speak on Wednesday, please see page 2 of the meeting schedule for contact info.

Also see Rules of Procedure, section 8:
