That all participants / senators feel heard]
My goal right now to maintain a healthy senate, as Nickwawanna shared a safe place to share ideas and thoughts and that it's secure for the future senates.
To what extent can guests speak in terms of the public forum?
We want to be inclusive but sometimes if there are a lot of questions/comments, we can't get through the agenda.
we do 3 minutes per person and also have written submissions that may be read.
So are guests allowed to contribute when the discussion actually occurs? For instance, some deans or faculty who aren't on Senate but they want to contribute once the discussion has started.
Sorry for so many questions!
Does the Brown act apply to small task forces and work groups? Like Faculty Senate or committee work groups?
Do you allow "public" comment during the presentation of other items?
@Jane the Brown act is for Senates and established sub committees of the Senate. Usually task forces or work groups are not unless defined by formal action of the senate
Thanks, I didn't think so, but wanted to make sure.
@Jesse Public comment can be on any topic including those not on the agenda. they are usually at the beginning of the meeting. It is for those who cannot debate on the topic as defined in your ground rules or if a topic is not on the agenda.
@Cheryl for guests it depends on your local ground rules. Roberts does not allow for guest speakers, only senators can engage in debate. This can be changes by 2/3 vote or by establishing your own ground rules.
Yes, we are introverts and we don't think out loud. So we check out after a while.
@Kimberly - so many great ideas are missed from not reaching out actively to the introverts and making comfortable spaces
