James, though the ad hoc nominating committee worked over the summer to
carry out elections for the Governance Committee so that it could be under
way in time to send a report to the October Council meeting, it simply was
not possible to do so. In fact, the two student members were not elected
until very recently and the election for a contract faculty member is
ongoing. The Committee will begin to meet in the near future. I expect
there will be a communication to this effect from the ad hoc nominating
committee at the Council meeting. I would not wish to speak for the
Governance Committee, but I assume that a first report could be expected
from them at the November Council meeting.

Other members of the ad hoc nominating committee or the Governance
Committee may wish to respond further to your enquiry.
