Standing Committees

The Board has established four standing committees that meet regularly. The committees receive information and reports, monitor certain compliance obligations, review statuses/progress of pending initiatives, and preview proposed policies and actions. For more detailed information about standing committees, see the Committees Policy.

Each committee meets on a regular basis. General time, date and location information is provided; however, please be sure to check with the President's Office (913-469-8500, ext. 7663) to confirm meeting information for each committee.

Frequently Asked Questions

JCCC's Board of Trustees abides by the Kansas Open Meeting Acts (KOMA), KSA 75-4317 et seq. Therefore, Board of Trustees meetings are open to the public. Only executive sessions are closed.

The Board may call an executive session, which is open only to the elected members of the Board of Trustees. Others, such as college counsel, may attend an executive session by invitation. The Trustees may go into executive session for these reasons:

  • To discuss personnel matters concerning non-elected personnel
  • To consult with the College's attorney
  • To confer on employer-employee negotiation
  • To discuss matters affecting a student
  • For preliminary discussions relating to the acquisition of real property
  • For reasons of security, if open discussion would jeopardize security

No. After you've signed in, you may simply take a seat in the meeting room (usually the Hugh W. Speer Board Room, GEB 137). Board packets, which tell you what will be discussed at the regular monthly meeting, are available online.

The meeting dates are posted online. Meetings usually begin at 5 p.m. (those that start at a different time are noted by an asterisk) and take place in the Hugh W. Speer Board Room, GEB 137, on the JCCC campus. The dates and times of regular meetings may be changed by the majority consent of the Board of Trustees.

The Board may also call special meetings in between the regular monthly meetings and set times for workshops and retreats. Special meeting dates and times are posted on the online event calendar. Changes to meeting times and the dates and times of special meetings, workshops and retreats will be posted. The media is also notified of meeting times and dates.
