President Bannon indicated that as it is the case after every Convention, it was time again to look at the structure of UTE Standing Committees. To this effect, she asked all RVPs to provide their preferences in committee participation and to also indicate the position they would like to hold within those committees. She also reminded Council Members that this item will be submitted at the September Executive Council meeting for ratification.
President Bannon also indicated that the two new RVPs will be invited to come in one day early at the next Executive Council Meeting in September for an orientation session.
There will be a retreat for Council sometimes next year and the location will be advised later.
