Minutes of the Telephone Conference Call Meeting of April 1, 2014

The April 1, 2014 telephone conference call meeting of the Texas Woman’s University Board of Regents was called to order by its Chair, Mrs. Sue Bancroft, at the appointed time and place.

Mr. Lance Vanzant, Interim General Counsel, stated that this was a special called telephone conference call meeting of the Texas Woman’s University Board of Regents, immediate action being required and the convening at one location of a quorum of the governing board being difficult. He said that the meeting was being held at the 16th Floor of the ACT (Administration Conference Tower) Building at TWU, the location where meetings of the governing board are normally held and that the conference call was being recorded in the Board of Regents Room    in Denton, as required by state law.  Therefore, Mr. Vanzant asked each participant to identify themselves early in their remarks so that the record would reflect who was speaking.  He then called roll to determine who was present on the telephone.  Responding that they were present were Board Chair Bancroft, Ms. Anna Maria Farias, Mrs. Debbie Gibson, Dr. Ann Scanlon McGinity, Mrs. Nancy Paup, Mr. George Schrader, Dr. Melissa Tonn, and Mrs. Mary Wilson.

Chair Bancroft called the meeting to order and noted that a quorum of the Board was present. She called upon Mr. Vanzant, who read the following, “The motion to be considered today is for approval of the Seventh Supplemental Resolution to the Master Resolution authorizing the issuance, sale, and delivery of Board of Regents of Texas Woman's University Revenue Financing System Refunding Bonds, Series 2014, and approving and authorizing instruments and procedures relating thereto (Exhibit 1).”  Mr. Vanzant then introduced Dr. Brenda Floyd, Vice President for Finance and Administration, who discussed the proposed motion and called upon Mr. Matt Boles from RBC Capital Markets, who briefly reviewed the document sent to Board members regarding the parameters that must be met for this motion.  Mrs. Bancroft asked for a motion to approve and a second.  Ms. Farias made a motion, seconded by Mrs. Wilson, for approval of the Seventh Supplemental Resolution to the Master Resolution authorizing the issuance, sale, and delivery of Board of Regents of Texas Woman's University Revenue Financing System Refunding Bonds, Series 2014, and approving and authorizing instruments and procedures relating thereto.  The motion passed unanimously.

Mrs. Bancroft thanked the Regents for their participation.  There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
