Meetings and Communication/Record Keeping.  The ITPC meets on a regular basis to consider old business, new business, and  recommendations and reports from advisory committees regarding information technology issues at Central.

Meeting agendas are published/distributed in advance of the meeting date.  Pertinent information is attached to the agenda for review by ITPC members prior to the meeting.  Requests to place items on the agenda are communicated to the Chair of the ITPC at least one week in advance of the meeting date.  New business may be introduced and considered during the meeting, when appropriate.  Minutes/Meeting notes are kept brief, and posted to an appropriate web site for communication to the campus. 

Decision-Making.  A quorum, consisting of a simple majority, must be present for the ITPC to take any official action.  The ITPC operates by consensus of its members, with formal votes taken only regarding issues on which the membership of the ITPC is of differing opinion.  All members present when a vote is taken will cast a vote, or indicate a reason for abstaining from the vote.

Review of ITPC charge.  The charge and operating procedures of the ITPC are reviewed during September and/or October of every odd numbered year.

Committees may conduct business and voting via electronic means.
