I.
REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO NOMINATE FACULTY COUNCIL OFFICERS FOR 2001-2002 (D 1247-1248) „ Bruce P. Palka.

The members of the nominating committee were Bruce Palka (mathematics), chair, Neal Armstrong (civil engineering), Patrick Davis (pharmacy), Martha Hilley (music), and Michael Starbird (mathematics).

A. Election of the Chair Elect.

The committee nominated Michael H. Granof (accounting) and Elizabeth Richmond-Garza (English). There were no other nominees. Professor Granof was elected by secret ballot.

B. Election to the Executive Committee of a member from the Faculty Advisory Committee on Budgets.

The committee nominated Neal E. Armstrong (civil engineering) and Thomas G. Palaima (classics). There were no other nominees. The election resulted in a tie. On the recommendation of Professor Palka and the secretary, the Council agreed to include both Armstrong and Palaima on the executive committee. (Some members had left the meeting before the tie was announced, so it seemed unwise to hold a second election.)

C. Election to the Executive Committee of a member from the Faculty Welfare Committee.

The committee nominated Mark I. Alpert (marketing administration) and Sharon D. Horner (nursing). There were no other nominees. Professor Alpert was elected by secret ballot.

D. Election to the Executive Committee of a member from the Educational Policy Committee.

The committee nominated Cynthia W. Shelmerdine (classics) and Michael P. Starbird (mathematics). There were no other nominees. Professor Shelmerdine was elected by secret ballot.
