Board of Visitors elects Executive Committee
Six-member committee approves amendment to add seventh member
The Board of Visitors convened in the Rotunda Board Room Thursday to elect the Executive Committee for the current academic year.
The committee, composed of six members, including the Rector, the Vice Rector and four elected members, convenes in between full board meetings meetings as necessary.
The board approved University Rector George Martin as committee chair and Vice Rector William Goodwin Jr. as the Vice Chair. The four elected committee members include Victoria Harker, Stephen Long, Timothy Robertson and Linwood Rose.
The board also approved an amendment for the addition of a seventh member to the committee. The amendment will be sent to the General Assembly for final approval.
“Seven obviously is an odd number, which means … you will never have a tie,” Martin said.
The seventh member will be Edward Miller once the amendment is passed, but he will currently sit on as a non-voting member.
