The first of two meetings for Oregon State University’s new board of trustees concluded with the establishment of a board chair, vice chair and three initial committees. Pat Reser, chairwoman of Reser Fine Foods, was selected as the board’s new chair. Darald Callahan, former president of Chevron Chemical, was selected as vice chair. Both were selected unanimously. The appointed committees include an academic strategies committee, finance and administration committee and executive and audit committee. Held at the CH2M Hill Alumni Center, the board convened between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. A follow-up reception took place at the Native American Longhouse until 7 p.m. Before Reser and Callahan were selected as chair and vice chair, board secretary Megan Reeves went through a brief overview of Senate Bill 270 and where it currently places the board in regards to governing abilities and organization.
