Business Meeting, Sunday, March 3, 1996
The Association of College Educators of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing was called to order by President Tom Jones.
New Business continued: Article V. Committees
A report was presented by the AD-HOC Committee on the ACE-DHH By-Laws
amendment. The suggested terminology is as follows:
Section 1.0. Executive Committee
Section 1.2.4. Initiate, make recommendations, and receive recommendations
from the membership for statements, policies, and actions (a) related to the goals, business, and activities of the
Association, (b) related to legislation, regulations, policies, and actions of other organizations and agencies, and (c)
that any maters already approved by the membership, and then brought to the CED Board for consideration, to be
acted upon, except for matters directly affecting or changing certification and accreditation standards.
David Martin moved and Barry Griffing seconded the amendment as stated. Motion passed. The change will be
published in the Fall newsletter and voted on at the business meeting in Santa Fe. Paul Crutchfield referred to the
CEASD communication sent to postsecondary programs regarding prospective funding cuts. He requested a
committee be established to draft a response and make contact with Oscar Cohen. Shirin Antia accepted the
responsibility to complete this task. Harold Johnson encouraged the membership to develop a Web page for ACE-
DHH. It is another way of distributing information on programs. Shirin Antia moved and Harold Johnson seconded
that the Executive Board pursue the development of a Web page with the use of discretionary funds. Paul
Crutchfield introduced a friendly amendment to drop the word "pursue". The motion passed.
