CENTRAL WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY Board of Trustees May 20, 2022 ACTION – Appointment of Secretary to the Board

CWUP 1-60-070 articulates officers of the Board of Trustees, including the Secretary to the Board, who “shall provide administrative support to the board and who shall hold office at the pleasure of the board.” The bylaws of the board, in 1-70-030(1) articulate the duties of the board secretary to include: • assist all committees of the board • certify to any action of the board of trustees or its committees • cause to be filed or recorded in appropriate offices of public record actions of the board • execute proxies, sign receipts and acknowledgements, and notices and declarations • respond on behalf of the board to all correspondence and initiate and send correspondence on behalf of the board. Linda Schactler has served as Chief of Staff and board secretary since April 2014 but will leave the university on June 1, 2022. A search is underway for a new Chief of Staff. The president has nominated Dania Cochran to serve as interim Secretary to the Board, effective June 1, 2022.
