Whereas Rule 5 E of the Rules of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges states in part, "The immediate past president shall prepare a brief report...", and
Whereas these "brief reports" required by Rule 5 E have been rendered unnecessary by the establishment of the Senate Website and Internet access where complete Executive Committee reports, minutes, and other material are available instantly,
Resolved that the Academic Senate delete that portion of Rule 5 E that states in part, "The immediate past president shall prepare a brief report...."
The Senate Rules have been updated. Rule 5 E now reads: The immediate Past President shall perform other such functions as the president may assign in carrying out the purpose and policies of the Academic Senate.
