The date is November 13, 2009 and the time is 8:02 a.m. This is 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.

This conference call is being recorded in the Board of Regents Room in Denton, as required by state law. Therefore, will each participant please identify yourself early in your remarks so that the record will reflect who is speaking.

Regent Crumpacker then said, “I call the Board of Regents meeting to order and note that a quorum is present. I will call on Mr. Lawhon to brief the Regents on today’s business.” Mr. Lawhon said, “The first motion to be considered today is for approval of the Fifth Supplemental Resolution to the Master Resolution authorizing the issuance, sale, and delivery of Board of Regents of Texas Woman’s University Revenue Financing System Bonds, Series 2009A; and approving and authorizing instruments and procedures relating thereto as set out in Exhibit 1 and appointing the Vice President for Finance and Administration at Texas Woman’s University as the authorized representative referred to in said Resolution as set out in Exhibit 1.” Mr. Crumpacker asked, “Do I hear a motion to approve and a second?” After a motion to approve was made by Regent Dykes and seconded by Regent McCullough, the Chair said, “Is there any discussion?” There being no further discussion, the Chair said, “All in favor say ‘aye’,” upon which all Regents said “aye.” The Chair then said, “All opposed say ‘no’,” upon which no Regents said “no.” The Chair announced that the motion passed.

Mr. Lawhon said, “The second motion to be considered today is for approval for the Vice President for Finance and Administration to enter into a contract with Core Construction in the amount not to exceed $9.5 million for the construction of the new Fitness and Recreation Building at the Denton Campus. Dr. Brenda Floyd, Vice President for Finance and Administration, called upon Mr. Harold Johnson, Associate Vice President for Facilities Management and Construction, who explained that the project bidding process was extremely good and that the project LEED’s (Leadership in Energy and Environment Design) pursuit is good for the University and its students. Mr. Crumpacker then asked, “Do I hear a motion to approve and a second?” After a motion to approve was made by Regent Chriss and seconded by Regent Dykes, the Chair said, “Is there any discussion?” There being no further discussion, the Chair said, “All in favor say ‘aye’,” upon which all Regents said “aye.” The Chair then said, “All opposed say ‘no’,” upon which no Regents said “no.” The Chair announced that the motion passed.
