Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE trTHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, April Separate trustees have best attendance; U of L senate lags By 1IBUB LEGG Herald Staff Waiter Lethbridge separate school trustees have a be.ter atten- dance record, and hold more meetings, than tlMir counter- parts on the city's public board and the University of Lethbridge senate. Twenty-three public meet- ings were held by the separ- ate board in 1972. Perfect attendance is recorded for chairman John Boras and trustees Frank Peta and Paul Matisz. Separate trustee Ron Fabbi did not attend two meetings last year and fellow board member Stsve Vaselenak three iiituigs Mr. Vaselenak's absences not consecutive, and that's important. The Alberta School states a person is not quali- fied to remain a trustee if he: "Absents himseif without being authorized by a resolu- tion of the board to do so, from the meetings of ths board for three (3) consecu- tive regular meetings unless his absence is due to illness which he can prove by a medical certificate covering the period of his absence." Since January of this year, separate trustees have held seven regular meetings. Full attendance is r c c o r ded, acain, (or Mr. Boras and Mr. One meeting each was missed by Mr. Yaselenak Mid Mr. Matisz but Mr. Fabbi has only attended tuo meet- ings this year. Mr. Fabbi's five consecu- tive absences were approved by the board, for "business in a special reso- lution passed Feb. 14. Public trustees held 19 meetings during 1972. four less than the separate board. Perfecc attendance was i ecorded fcr these sessions bv trustees Dorothy Beckel, Bill Brown and Carl Johnson. Board chairman Dr. Doug MrPhcrson missed one meet- ing. Utotee B-jug Card miss- ed two. trustee A. R. Mont absent for three (not cor.iccuiive> and trustee Reg Tumor couldn't make it for three consecutive meetings. A resolution approving Mr. Turner's absence, for holi- days, was passed by public trustees. Six meetings have been held by the public board this year but only five were opsn to ratepayers. Of those six, psrfect at- tendance is recorded for Dr. MePhersoa. Card. Mr. Brown and Mrs. Beskel. Trustees Johnson and Mont missed one sitting each. Mr. Turner was absent for two. Public and separate trus- tees at Letrbridgi3 receive SI ,200 per year. The board chairmen earn Attendance records and the number of public meetings are fewer still for the Univer- sity of Lethbridge senate. Of 55 senators, 27 are need- ed for a session to function. During 1972, only four sen- ate meetings were held and cne of those (April 23) fail- ed to attract the required number of senators. Twenty-five members at- tended that sitting. The re- maining three meetings were attended by 33 members (Jan. 40 members (March 1J) and 38 members (Nov. That's an average absentee rate of 21 senators per meet- ing. At the University of Al- bsrta, senate executive offi- cer Bill Thorsell say? meet- ing attendance averages 72 to 81 per cent. Senate attendance is even higher at the University of Calgary, where the average is 80 to 85 per cent. Letfobridge university chan- cellor Dr. James Oshiro, who says the local average of 60 per cent attendance is better than many other universitiy senates, will not release the of senators failing to attend meetings. Nor is a record of senators with full attendance avail- able. Of the total U of L senate, 25 members live outside Lethbridge. The most inter- est shown in a senate meet- ing was back in 1968, when 45 members attended the Jan. 27 sitting. "Generally speaking, I would say we have a better record of attendance than many other university sen- ates. "By and large, most sen- ators come whenever they can. One must remember that many senators are ex- tremely busy people. "We expect some them to drive a good distance to attend Saturday meetings. I would say 60 per cent of thj senators in attendance at any given meeting is a good rec- ord for Dr. Oshiro says. U of L senators receive no financial reward fpr their work in higher education, al- though they are entitled to reasonable travel allow- ances. Thirty-tbree senators at- tended the Jan. 27 meeting this year (22 were absent) and 34 members managed to make it' for the April 7 ses- sion (21 were U of L senators will iwt meet formally for another six months.
