BAA announces no new members for Sept. 7 vote

Baylor Alumni Association members who joined the association after 12:30 p.m. today will not be allowed to vote at the BAA meeting Sept. 7, BAA President Collin Cox said.

The decision came after a unanimous vote during a conference-call BAA board meeting.

Members will be voting on the Transition Agreement, which was proposed by both the BAA and Baylor on May 31. The agreement would dissolve the BAA and allow Baylor to take over alumni relations and operations.

Cox said there has been concern that the proposed transition has attracted people to join the BAA in order to vote at the meeting.

“There is concern this disagreement is getting a lot of attention,” Cox said. “We didn’t want people to sign up just to vote.”

Cox said 100 memberships were started this summer. He said the numbers of memberships have actually decreased, as 300 memberships were started in the summer of 2012.

The BAA currently has around 17,000 members.
