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, August 13, 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 chair — Peter Grema, at 702-863-4633 — in advance of the meeting to make necessary arrangements.
Due to the ever changing landscape due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the nature of this board meeting could be impacted. Any information or updates will be made available on the Scarlet and Gray Free Press’ new website, right here at https://unlvscarletandgray.com/.
Here is the virtual meeting option for Google Meets for those who wish to attend virtually. In the event the Board decides to hold the meeting virtually, this will also be the link where the meeting takes place.
