Section 16-48-7

Meetings of board of trustees.

(a) The Board of Trustees of Auburn University shall hold its regular annual meeting each year at the institute on the first Monday in June, unless the board shall, in regular session, determine to hold its meeting at some other time and place. Special meetings of the board may be assembled by either one of the two methods outlined as follows:

(1) Special meetings of the board may be called by the Governor. In calling such special meetings the Governor shall mail a written notice to each trustee at least 10 days in advance of the date of such meetings.

(2) Upon the application in writing of any three members of the board, the Governor shall call a special meeting, naming the time and place thereof and causing notices to be issued in writing to the several members of the board. Such meeting shall not be held on a date less than 10 days subsequent to the notice from the Governor.

(b) The members of the board of trustees may recess at any regular or special meeting from one date to another, and at such adjourned meeting they may transact any business relating to the affairs of the institution.

(c) Members of the board of trustees, the executive committee of the board of trustees, or any other committee established by the board of trustees may participate in a meeting of the board or committee by means of telephone conference, video conference, or similar communications equipment by means of which all persons participating in the meeting may hear each other at the same time. Participation by such means shall constitute presence in person at a meeting for all purposes, including the establishment of a quorum. Notice of such meetings must be given in accordance with the Alabama Open Meetings Act and such telephone or video conference or similar communications equipment shall also allow members of the public the opportunity to simultaneously listen to or observe such meetings.
