Leadership Class 26 had their Higher Education Day Feb. 15 and spent time on the Oklahoma State University and Northeastern State University campuses.

“It was a great day. We got to figure out some resources, walk through the OSU campus and see some of the things they’ve got going on,” TACC CEO/President Nathan Reed said. “They were unfortunately in class, so we didn’t get to walk through the clinical area, which is the coolest part if you’ve ever been to the OSU facility.”

The group will travel next week for Oklahoma City Day in which they will spend their time at the Capitol; have a tour of the property and meet with the senators and representatives.

“We’ll stay the night and then the next day we always go to the [Oklahoma City] Bombing Memorial,” said Reed.

In other business, the board appointed two directors to give authority listed in the bylaws.

“We to get the Audit Task Force together,” Reed said. “We need two volunteer directors that can help lead the charge on an RFP, two auditors, and selecting the auditor for this upcoming fiscal year.”

The board was updated on the audit for the fiscal year 2022 and 2023. Reed said the audit is a clean report.

“They did not make any suggestions this year. There are a few audit entries they want us to make that just clean up a couple of different scenarios but other than that, everything was clean, and he said this was one of the best reports he’s gotten from us when it comes to ease of completion and everything,” Reed said.
