Board of Governors, September 28, 2000 - APPENDIX VI (REVISED)
The following slate of nominees for membership on the Strategic Planning Task Force is presented in anticipation of approval by the Board of the terms of reference and composition of the Strategic Planning Task Force as recommended by the Senate (see Items Referred by Senate, Appendix VIII in the Board agenda package).
Required: Four persons named by the Board, including an alumna or alumnus of the University.
Nominees: Carol McAulay-Weldon
Recommended: That the Board of Governors delegate to the Senior Operations Committee, the responsibility for naming the staff member to the Strategic Planning Task Force on recommendation of the Presidents of the non-faculty employee groups.
The proposed membership of the Strategic Planning Task Force includes, "One staff member named by the Board of Governors on recommendation of the Presidents of the non-faculty employee groups". The Presidents of the non-faculty employee groups have met but have not as yet put forward a nomination to the Board. They have asked to nominate a representative in early October. Since the first planned meeting of the Strategic Planning Task Force will be held prior to the next meeting of the Board in November, Board members are asked to delegate authority to the Senior Operations Committee with regard to naming the staff member to the Task Force.
Recommended: That the April 2001 meeting of the Property & Finance Committee be changed from April 16 to April 30, 2001.
Each year the Operating and Capital Budget is considered by four bodies: SCUP, Senate, Property & Finance, and the Board (for final approval). It is desirable to have Senate's advice on the budget before convening the Property & Finance Committee. That would suggest that the meeting of P&F should be shifted to follow the Senate meeting, i.e., to change the meeting date from April 16 to April 30, providing the following meeting sequence:
The following have been named by the Senior Operations Committee, on behalf of the Board of Governors, to serve on external Boards and committees.
London Biotechnology Incubator Board of Directors
Mr. Don McDougall
Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging
Dr. W.A. Bridger, Vice-President (Research), ex officio (voting)
Dr. Angelo Belcastro, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, or his representative, (term to March 31, 2002)
Dr. A.W. Taylor (term to March 31, 2001)
Mr. D. McDougall (term to March 31, 2001)

The CCAA Board of Directors has 17 members: 5 members named by UWO, 5 members named by St. Joseph's Health Centre, and 7 members named by the Board of CCAA (5 regional/national members and 2 others). The suggested structure of the UWO representation is:
The Vice-President (Research)

Three others, at least two of whom are not employees of the University.
The Board's membership year is April 1 - March 31, and the standard term of appointment is two years, renewable. Initially some members are appointed for one-year terms to ensure staggered terms.
Thames Valley Children's Centre - Liaison Committee
Dr. Jayne Garland, Director, School of Physical Therapy (replacing Dr. John Kramer)
Foundation Western Board of Directors
The Senior Operations Committee has nominated Ms. Joan Francolini (HBA '55) for appointment to the Foundation Western Board of Directors for a three-year term ending September 2003.
There are four representatives of the University on the Board of Directors of Foundation Western, appointed by the Board of the Foundation on the recommendation of the Senior Operations Committee (acting on behalf of the Board). Currently the University representatives are: Larry Oehm (term to September 2000), Jim Good (first three-year term ends September 2001), and David Thompson and Laurie Lashbrook (first three-year terms end September 2002).
Dr. Oehm has now completed two three-year terms and is ineligible for re-election. It is recommended that Ms. Francolini be appointed in his place. Joan is currently serving as President of the Foundation Western Board of Directors although her term ends on October 18, 2000. As Past President she is eligible for re-election for one additional three-year term.
In her professional life, Joan is Executive Director of the Lawson Foundation. She is a member of the Campaign Western Chair's Circle and a member of the Community Advisory Committee to the Dean of Medicine & Dentistry.
The schedule of the Annual Review of the President has been revised, as shown below. The Annual Review of the President protocol was established by the Senior Operations Committee in January 1995, and reported to the Board. Since then, the review process has been used every year successfully. The proposed change relates to the reduction in the number of Board meetings from eight to five, where it is expected that there will be no Board meeting in May. Therefore, although the Senior Operations Committee will perform the review in May as in the past, the resulting report will not be presented to the Board until closed session of the June meeting. The Committee will continue to review and approve the President's proposed priorities for the next year in June, and those will be recommended for Board approval in June, as has been the practice.
The Student Disciplinary Code provides for the appointment of up to 15 Magistrates (one of whom shall be a student registered in the MBA program) and Prosecutors (who must be Law students). Nominations from these positions come from the Legal Affairs Officer of the University Students' Counsel. Fourteen Magistrates are named below. The position to be held by an MBA student is currently vacant. Amy Finch is the Justice Commissioner, Michael Mahoney has been named Prosecutor, Eleni Kassaris has been named Defence Counsel and Jason Wadden is Chief Magistrate.
The Senior Operations Committee, on behalf of the Board, has appointed the following Magistrates:
