This is an open forum for those persons who wish to offer brief comments to the board and who have signed up to do so on the night of the meeting.  Presentations are limited to five minutes.  Groups of persons who wish to address the board on the same topic should delegate a single spokesperson to make their presentation.

During the Public Comments section of the agenda, any member of the public may request to address the board in open meeting on a matter of public interest.  This includes college employees when speaking as members of the public.

Public Comment presentations are made for informational purposes only.  If the board feels the matter warrants further attention, it can be placed on the agenda for a subsequent meeting.

In the event that a quorum consisting of three members of the governing board is not present, but at least two members are present, those members in attendance shall constitute an ad hoc Standing Committee of the board and shall meet as the same under this notice to consider items on this agenda for all purposes, including recommendations to a duly constituted quorum of the board but excluding any action, decision, or vote that must be taken by a quorum of members of the governing board.
