Trustees Hold Off NIC Sports Decision

Item: NIC trustees need more time: Decision on changing athletic conferences delayed two weeks/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The North Idaho College board of trustees decided Wednesday night they need two more weeks to digest a major proposal for the school's sports teams to switch conferences for budget reasons as enrollment shrinks and the school brings in less money. "We know that there is a problem, but for some of us that are just getting our arms around this, we would love to be able to be in a position where we had some time to talk about it," said Trustee Ron Nilson. He added the conference-change proposal surprised the board. "The board does need that time to process," said trustee Christie Wood. "We'll look at the entire budget, what everything means, all the ramifications, all the moving parts."

Question: What do you think of the decision by the North Idaho College Board of Trustees to postpone action on the athletic department decision?
