Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA) Training Alan Smith, Assistant Attorney General, gave the board and executive leadership team a refresher

President Wohlpart summarized the values and strategic planning framework process for the board. He explained that based on feedback from the university community, the steering committee developed three different draft models of Values and Strategic Planning frameworks, which have similar content and themes. Board members reviewed and discussed the three draft models. It was clear that draft model number two resonated most with board members. They noted they could see this getting us to our vision and they all preferred the simpler, less wordy model. Community, belonging, engagement, and having something that everyone can buy in to and feel they are a part of were other components the board felt strongly about. President Wohlpart reported that at the May Board of Trustees meeting, the group will workshop draft actions or initiatives that will populate the Strategic Plan. Tagline Workshop Dr. Morse introduced two possible taglines to complement CWU’s new brand: • Futures in focus – simple, symmetrical, alliterative – the most straightforward and easy to remember. “Focus” conveys purpose/intention, but also grit/hustle. • See Beyond – most distilled invitation to our brand promise; function as either/both an institutional and enrollment tagline; most inspirational expression of potential; many extensions/meanings, including seeing beyond the Cascades. Board members reviewed and discussed the two possible taglines and offered feedback. Dr. Morse explained that feedback will continue through the end of the month. This will come back to the board in the future. ACTION AGENDA Approval of Consent Agenda The formal recognition for our faculty and staff is contained in our consent agenda.
