@DECISION:  [Board approved report and course of action by Mike on 2023-07-4 ]
  • 2nd member review not needed as action taken by security does not require further action by board - person can regain key access by submitting a new signed key form that would then have to be approved by the board of directors
    • Jay asks if security can arbitrarily turn off key card access
    • LaDeana states security can unilaterally turn off badge access to make situations safe
    • Jay asks what the policy is when a member of security puts their hands on another member
    • LaDeana states police should have been called
    • Nicole states the policy, any active security officer may deactivate a key of a member, and states any member may present policies to the board for consideration
    • Jay reasks what the policy is when security puts hands on a member
    • Nicole states that was not on the agenda, but that needs to be investigated
    • Mike states that that is under investigation by COCC
    • Jay states he is a witness for other incidents and was not asked his side of any story
  • 3rd member review not needed as action taken by forum moderators does not require further action by the board - person would have to reply to forum moderators and agree to the terms of service
    • They can email directors@makeict.org and we will forward to the moderators
