Board of Directors Meeting Dates for FY 2017

It is the policy of West Central Illinois Educational Telecommunications Corporation that meetings of its Board of Directors are open to the public, although certain meetings, or portions of meetings, may be closed in order to address confidential or proprietary matters.

There may be meetings in which matters are discussed that (1) relate to individual employees, (2) deal with proprietary matters, (3) are related to litigation, and (4) could, if disclosed, compromise the stations’ business interest. Such meetings or parts of meetings will be designated as “Closed” and so noted in minutes. In cases where the agenda indicates that such matters as previously noted above will be discussed, the meeting will be “Closed” and a statement will follow shortly thereafter on the website indicating the reason for the closure of the meeting.

On November 12, 2015, December 22, 2015 and January 21, 2016 meetings of the Strategic Planning Committee were held. They were all closed meetings because they dealt with matters relating to the FCC Reverse Auction.
