Committee of the Whole

The JCCC Board of Trustees will operate committee meetings in a “Committee of the Whole” format as a pilot from April 2021 through March 2022.  There will be formal evaluation in September 2021 and February or March 2022 to determine whether to continue using the Committee of the Whole format, to revert to the previously used four-committee structure, or to use some alternate format to allow Board interaction on policy and governing matters.

The JCCC Board of trustees suspended standing committee meetings and requirements for the pilot period of April 2021 through March 2022. The previous structure included four standing committees: Management, Learning Quality, Human Resources, and Audit. 

What is a Committee of the Whole?

The Committee of the Whole is an alternative committee structure in which the Board conducts business with all members attending the Committee, instead of designating specific Trustees to specific committees.

The Committee of the Whole structure allows for all Trustees to meet and engage in discussion on issues likely to be presented in the regular monthly Board meeting, with no formal, binding action taken in the Committee of the Whole. Committee of the Whole meetings allow all Trustees to engage in a thorough consideration of agenda items in a more informal setting and allows the sharing of preliminary thoughts on items likely to be addressed at future regular monthly Board Meeting. 

How does it work?

The Committee of the Whole agenda will be developed jointly by the Board Chairperson and the President in the same manner the regular monthly meeting agenda is prepared.The Committee of the Whole meetings will be for information sharing and discussion.  Agenda items reviewed and discussed in the Committee of the Whole may be moved forward for full consideration at a future regular monthly Board of Trustees meeting.

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.
