AIHEC FALL 2022 BoD Meeting

AIHEC is pleased to conduct our 2022 Fall Board of Directors Meeting in conjuction with the NIEA Annual Convention and Trade Show at the Oklahoma City Convention Center in Oklahoma City, OK.  Our host hotel is the Omni - Oklahoma City and some of our meetings may occur there, pending final confirmation from NIEA. (Note that the convention center and hotel are located right next to one another - about 50 or so feet apart.) Our board meeting events are as follows:

  • Sunday, October 2, 2022: TCU Presidents Wellness & Selfcare Training (1:00 pm - 5:00 pm CT - in person only) 
  • Monday, October 3, 2022: Fall board meeting  (Breakfast: 7:45 am; Meeting: 8:30 am - 5:00 pm CT - in person with option to participate virtually, if needed)
  • Tuesday, October 4, 2022 (optional): AIHEC will host an optional 1-day AIHEC-HLC Peer Review Information Session & Training as an NIEA pre-meeting. This session is not part of the AIHEC official board meeting, but interested presidents are encouraged to attend. TCU ALOs, CAOs, and other interested TCU staff/faculty are strongly encouraged to attend. Separate registration is required. Registering here for the BoD meeting does not register you for the peer review training on Oct. 4.

The NIEA Convention and Trade Show  will take place October 5-8 at the Oklahoma City Convention Center. More information about the 53rd Annual NIEA Convention & Tradeshow can be found here

Board Meeting Details (Officer Elections):The AIHEC schedule of events, meeting agenda, and board materials will be distributed via email prior to the event. During the fall board meeting, the board will hold elections for officers, as elections are to be held at the fall meeting of every even numbered year. Any Director who has served as president of a Regular member for more than one year is eligible to run for any AIHEC office. Under the AIHEC bylaws, all our sitting officers may be re-elected if the board so desires because we are still under a national emergency order due to the covid-19 pandemic. Normally, the chair (only) is subject to a term limit of two terms. However, under section 8.07 of the AIHEC bylaws, the term limit on the board chair may be waived by the board during a pandemic/national emergency to help ensure continuity during uncertain times. Other officers are not subject to a term limit. (This includes the vice-chair, secretary, treasurer, and member-at-large/peacekeeper.)
