Board Meeting News Coverage
One of the paramount responsibilities of the Board of Trustees is to keep the public informed of its actions. Consequently, local news media representatives shall be welcome and encouraged to attend all regular and special meetings of the Board.
Broadcasting and Taping of Board Meetings
Photographic and electronic audio and video broadcasting and recording devices may be used at regular and special Board meetings legally open to the public. Persons operating cameras or broadcasting and/or recording devices must do so with a minimum of disruption to those present at the meeting. Specifically, the view between Trustees and the audience must not be obstructed, interviews must not be conducted during the meeting, and no commentary is to be given in a manner that distracts the Trustees or the audience
The Board, or its representatives, will make the necessary arrangements to have audio and video recordings of regular meetings and any special meetings that it deems appropriate. Audio and video recordings are not to be considered part of the minutes of any meeting.
