The Virginia Tech Board of Visitors Executive Committee will meet in special session on Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 11 a.m. at the Inn at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.

The Executive Committee will meet primarily to consider faculty salary increases. The full board was unable to take action at its regularly scheduled meeting June 1 because state salary appropriations were contingent upon certifications after the close of the 2014-15 fiscal year. 

In addition, the Executive Committee will meet briefly in open session to consider a capital project and then will go into closed session to take action on compensation and commemorative tributes. 

The Executive Committee is empowered to act on behalf of the full board in between regular meetings.

One board member, Jim Chapman, will participate by telephone. He will call from his office at Crenshaw, Ware & Martin, 150 West Main Street, Suite 1500, Norfolk, VA 23510.
