Um, this is going to be relatively short conference call.  We’ve got one item on the agenda.  It’s consent item a.  And, for those of you who don’t know, this was an item that was intended to go in front of the Board in September, and so, uh, we know that there were some impacts to not getting that in. And so, I really appreciate each of the Board members, you know, quickly finding some time in their agenda, in their schedules, to be able to meet this morning to consider this particular item. There’s a whole host of faculty at University of Montana up for tenure.  So, its… So, I would entertain a motion to approve consent item a. Staff Item, University of Montana-Missoula.

Chair Lozar:  Hearing no public comment, we will adjourn our short brief meeting this morning completing the one item of business.  Thank you all again for joining us this morning and for folks on the University of Montana campus and President Bodnar for ensuring that we were able to take action on this item this morning.

Unidentified Speaker:  Many thanks to you all from the University of Montana.  This is ... uh… I really appreciate you all taking a little bit of time to do this and helping us catch up on an oversight that was having an impact on some of our faculty.  Much, much appreciated.
