Process for recorded votes (roll-call) at Board and committee meetings

For all such future votes, the names of the trustees shall appear in the minutes and their vote identified. During the Student Enrolment/School Capacity Committee meeting on November 21, 2016, a counted vote (rather than a roll-call vote), was taken to pass a motion that was made in committee.
