"MPC meets all accreditation standards"



Election of Officers, from MPC Academic Senate bylaws:


Section 3. Election to Senate Offices


After Senate membership has been determined (by March 1st each year) senators shall elect officers for the coming year at the second meeting in March.  Outgoing and incoming senators shall vote (only for these elections) as members of the senate, and a quorum shall consist of a majority of the total number of such senators. 


At the second meeting in March, the senate shall elect from its new roster of members, the president, vice-president, secretary, the ASCCC representative, and COC chair.  Names shall be placed in nomination with the consent of the nominee. A ballot shall be prepared by the Secretary of the Senate, and a vote taken. Newly elected senators who are not already serving on the senate shall have no further voting privileges until they take office at the first meeting in the fall semester;  until that time sitting senators only shall vote on all other actions before the senate.


Election Date

We will have the election on our second regularly scheduled meeting in March, on Thursday March 18 at 2:45 pm.


At large adjunct position

Marguerite Stark is not on campus this semester, and it is unclear if she will return this semester.

What should we do?

Should we invite Eric Moberg to join us in an interim capacity for the rest of this semester?

Bylaws state that the adjuncts should vote for this seat.

Should we have an adjunct election for the rest of this semester?

Should we have an adjunct election for the position for the next three years?


Who do we talk to to arrange an adjunct election?
