Whereas a majority of resolutions are written at area meetings currently held two weeks prior to plenary sessions, and
Whereas delegates to the plenary sessions must gather input from local senate members concerning these resolutions, and
Whereas more time is needed for delegates to adequately study resolutions and communicate with local members,
Resolved that the Academic Senate direct the Executive Committee to adjust the timing of the area meetings to allow for earlier distribution of resolutions so local academic senates have at least five working days to review and obtain input.
Area meetings are now to be held 3 weeks rather than 2 weeks before session whenever feasible.
