Such a request, along with any supporting documentation, must be submitted at least three (3) working days prior to the start of the meeting. The President, in consultation with the Board Chair, will determine whether the item will be heard and when it will be heard. There will be a 5 minute time limit on any presentation. The Board Chair may decline to hear any matter determined by the President and Chair not to relate to a particular agenda item or that is outside the Board’s jurisdiction, or because it is not practicable for a particular meeting.
