Closed Meetings

Meetings of WMHT’s Board of Trustees, Board Committees and Community Advisory Board are generally open to the public. However, WMHT’s Board of Trustees, Board Committees, and Community Advisory Board may close portions of their meetings to consider matters relating to individual employees, proprietary information, litigation and other matters requiring the confidential advice of counsel, commercial or financial information obtained from a person on a privileged or confidential basis, or the purchase of property or services whenever the premature exposure of such purchase would compromise the business interests of WMHT. In those cases, the meeting and reason for its closure are indicated below.
