University of Connecticut Board of Trustees propose change to bylaws, allowing chairman to appoint committee chairs and call for special and emergency meetings with no votes needed from the other board members, according to the change draft presented in the Oct. 31. Board meeting agenda.

As well, the bylaw amendments would allow for additional changes to the bylaws to be announced at any given meeting, and then voted on at any given meeting instead of the meeting immediately following, according to the change draft.
