              Wendell George reported on the board retreat held on June 10 and 11, 2001. Topics of discussion included
              organizational structure and the North Campus White Paper. After a detailed review of the paper, the board
              recorded responses to each of the six listed recommendations. The board expressed a desire to use the
              recommendations outlined in the O’Rourke report to the furthest degree possible and gave total authority to
              incoming president Dr. Jack Becherer to implement any organizational changes decided upon. A draft of the
              strategic plan was reviewed. The board will develop end policies at a July 10 work session to direct the
              planning process. The work session ended with a meeting with the foundation budget and finance committee
              to discuss campus priorities.

              2.   Response to David Lindeblad’s White Paper

              Resource Director Kathy Erickson will meet with Bob Parlette in an attempt to finalize the staff’s
              collaborative District 15 governance recommendations. Budget issues seem to be the major stumbling block.
              Results of this meeting will be considered by the board and incoming president Jack Becherer at their June
              board retreat. The target is that a new District 15 governance structure will be decided upon by July 2001 in
              accordance with the wishes of Dr. Jack Becherer.

              As of May 30, the State Legislature and State Board for Community and Technical Colleges had not
              completed action on the allocation to WVC for the 2001-2002 Operating and Capital budgets. Using the
              estimates of possible budget levels provided by state board, the district budget committee set a target for
              expenditure of state funds at $11,881,000. The trustees were asked to approve operating expenditure at this
              level through the month of August by which time the allocation process should be completed and a final
              budget can be presented to the board for approval. The board was also asked to approve the increment of
              student service and activities fees to the new limit allowable so that a tuition schedule can be enacted as soon
              as the state board implements the budget allocation. In addition, the board was asked to approve the
              expenditures of capital project funds at the expected level until that budget is allocated by the legislature and
              state board for 2001-2002.

              MOTION NO. 1620

              Bill McDowell moved that the board approve continued expenditure of operating and capital funds at
              the expected level of allocation through August 2001 and approve the implementation of allowable
              increases in student service and activities fees. The motion was seconded by Kris Pomianek and carried
              unanimously.
