NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that the UNLV Student Newspaper Advisory Board (“the
Board”) intends to hold a public meeting at the hour of 8:30 a.m. on Friday November 5th, 2021.
The Board, at the discretion of its chairman, may take items out of order, combine related items to be heard in a single discussion, trail items until a later time during this meeting, postpone items to be heard at a future meeting or strike items from the agenda. A recess may be called at any time during the meeting.
Meetings of the UNLV Student Newspaper Advisory Board are audio recorded, and any member of the public may request and receive a copy of that audio recording file, along with the Board’s agenda, supporting documents and other materials used by the Board to deliberate and act.
If the number of people wishing to attend the Board’s meeting exceeds the capacity of the meeting room, the location of the meeting may be changed. In that event, notices will be conspicuously posted at the original location of the meeting to give the public notice of the new location of the meeting, and the starting time of the meeting will be delayed allowing sufficient time for members of the public to attend the meeting at its alternative location.
Members of the public will be afforded the opportunity to address the Board on matters within its jurisdiction at specified times during the meeting. Reasonable efforts will be made to assist and accommodate members of the public with physical disabilities. Please call the Board’s vice-chair — Mary Miller, at 661-488-6880 — in advance of the meeting to make necessary arrangements.
