Work Continues in June and July Meetings of the PTCC Executive Board, Compact System Users Task Force, and Rules and Bylaws Committee
On June 3, the PTCC Rules and Bylaws committee met to review potential draft amendments to the PTCC governing documents. The draft amendments were modified and submitted to the Executive Board for informal feedback at its meeting on July 10. The committee is scheduled to meet again on August 19 to finalize the recommendations and submit it to the Executive Board before being released for public comment and voted on by the full Commission at its annual meeting.
The newly established PT Compact System Users Task Force had its first meeting on June 29 to begin discussion of the existing system and provide recommendations for new operating system features and functionality. The task force will meet again on August 6 to continue its review and will subsequently submit a recommendations document to the Executive Board prior to the 2020 annual meeting.
The PTCC Executive Board met on July 10 to discuss several items of importance for the ongoing activities of the Commission including the 2019 Financial Review and draft amendments to the Rules, Bylaws, Polices and Procedures. The Board also voted to hold the 2020 Annual Commission meeting virtually. The legislative report noted a few states still have pending PT Compact legislation, though several bills were not passed due to COVID-19 shortened legislative sessions. The Compact Administrator also reported that a podcast interview with the APTA Student Assembly is expected to be released in early August. Finally, the Election Committee plans to seek nominations for several Executive Board positions slated for the annual meeting.
