NGC Review and Selection of Candidates Announcement

By Michael D. Cavanaugh | Nov. 20, 2013, 9 a.m. (ET)

Notice to USATT Members: 

On the afternoon of November 19, the Nominating and Governance Committee of USATT met by teleconference to review the nominees who had successfully met the requirements for nomination for the At Large Board Seat currently available.  The Nominating and Governance Committee consisted of Chairman Khoa Nguyen, Lucinda McRoberts, Dan Parker and Bob Fox.  Initially on the teleconference were USATT Chairman of the Board, Mike Babuin, General Counsel and Secretary, Dennis Taylor, CEO Mike Cavanaugh and USATT Membership Director, Joyce Grooms.  CEO Mike Cavanaugh explained the current sequence that we were in at the moment with the election process and Dennis Taylor then referenced the duties of the N&GC taken from the Bylaws. 

The members of the N&GC were previously sent the campaign statements and bios for the nominees for their review and reference during their deliberations.  At this point in the teleconference, Chairman Khoa Nguyen, called for Executive (Closed) Session and all but the members of the N&GC left the call.  When the N&GC finished their Executive (Closed) Session, Khoa Nguyen called Mike Cavanaugh and asked him to rejoin the call and prior to doing that Mike Cavanaugh sent notice to Mike Babuin and Dennis Taylor that they were free to rejoin the call. 

Everyone rejoined the call and Khoa was given the floor. 

MOTION by Dan Parker – The N&GC puts forth Ross Brown and Jim McQueen to stand for the At Large Board seat through the USATT general election process. 

SECOND – Bob Fox 


N&GC VOICE VOTE – PASSED by unanimous voice vote of the N&GC 

Everyone on the phone was reminded by CEO Mike Cavanaugh that the information just established should remain proprietary until such time as he could craft an announcement draft to be approved by Chairman Khoa Nguyen and Dennis Taylor.  That announcement would be posted on the website and the members of the nominee pool would be contacted directly from the CEO’s office with an individual  courtesy notice. 

Respectfully submitted,
