AR 2735: Board of Education Member Travel

The Board of Education encourages the participation of all members in appropriate conferences, conventions and workshops. To balance the investment of time and funds necessary to implement this policy, the Board establishes these principles and procedures for its guidance:

  1. The President will inform the Board of Education of appropriate conferences, conventions and workshops. The Board of Education will decide which events produce the greatest benefit to the Board of Education and Mt. Hood Community College.
  2. Funds for participation at such meetings will be included in the annual college budget. Since funds are limited, the Board of Education will designate which members would be most appropriate to participate in a given event.
  3. If authorized to attend by the Board of Education, individual Board members will be reimbursed for travel and incidental expenditures under the same general policies as college employees.
  4. When a conference, convention or workshop is not attended by the full Board, those who do participate will share, by means of written or oral reports, information, recommendations and materials acquired at the event.
