For March 5, 2014:
Update of previously posted draft revision of CLA Constitution.
Includes revisions based on FC suggestions from Dec. 4, 2013 meeting.
For February 19, 2014:
The information in the above document (click “CLA-PROGRAMS”) is for consideration regarding the question of programs and FC membership
The document available at the link above contains the following amendments that:
* incorporate language from our RTP and RSCA policies that update and bring the Constitution into line with those policies.
* update material on committees, including some that were missing, and incorporating language from a 2006 FC Document on CLA Committee structure.
* include recommendations for revisions culled from the CLA Retreat topics from 2011 and discussions since then.
This is clarified as much as possible in comments in the annotated view of the document (“track changes” or “view document markup”). In some places, competing proposals are indicated.
Please email proposals for additional changes to Prof. Misty Jaffe (FC Chair) at firstname.lastname@example.org. FC members may also want to mention them on the Beachboard site of the FC under the Discussion forum where a topic is available.
We will review these amendments in a special meeting devoted to this one topic on Feb 19th at our regular meeting time.
