Whereas, The bylaws of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC), Section 2, currently indicate the beginning and ending dates for terms of elected members of the Executive Committee as commencing on June 1 and concluding on May 31 of each year;

Whereas, In practice the ASCCC Executive Committee’s last meeting of the academic year occurs between May 25 and June 10 depending on site availability, calendar considerations, and scheduled professional development or consultative meetings; and,

Whereas, The final meeting of the ASCCC Executive Committee’s academic year has traditionally been a business meeting concluding on Friday and orientation for the new Executive Committee beginning on Saturday morning, and the terms of service listed in the bylaws can create difficult procedural questions when action is required during the business meeting on Friday;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges amend its bylaws so that Article IV, Section 2 reads as follows:

Section 2. Selection and Term

Terms of office shall commence at the start of the second day of the last Executive Committee meeting of the academic year or June 10, whichever occurs first.

Terms of office shall conclude at the end of the first day of the last Executive Committee meeting of the academic year or June 9, whichever occurs first.
