Tune into the first episode of “Inside HCCS”!
The Board of Trustees of the Houston Community College System will meet as a Committee of the Whole this Thursday, January 16th, 2014 at 12:30 p.m. OR AFTER, and from day-to-day as required, at the HCC Administration Building, 3100 Main.
The agenda item that caught my eye is topic II, A -4:
“Extension of Contract with Qatus Advisors and Any Other Related Matters”
A quick Yahoo! search on the keywords Qatus Advisors yields this result. Chase Untermeyer served for three years as the United States Ambassador to Qatar under President George W. Bush. Mr. Untermeyer’s resume identifies him as the Managing Partner, Qatus Advisors–September 2007 – present.
In this September post I wrote a source intimately familiar with the HCC District II Trustee race stated Bruce Austin told the Chronicle board that HCC was looking into two accounts; one is associated with the Qatar campus.
- Will Dave Wilson sit at the dais?
- Will anyone from Qatus Advisors be present at the Thursday meeting?
- Has Gigi Do prematurely returned from her two year, tuition & fees and transportation paid for by YOU (including two years’ salary) sabbatical at UT-Austin? Psst—-I know she has come back to Houston….wink, wink. What a shame for her to interrupt full-time pursuit of her Ph.D.
If you can’t attend in person you can watch the meeting LIVE!
We’ll soon learn if all is well over at HCC!
