OFFICERS OF THE BOARD.
MEETINGS OF THE REGENTS.
The first or annual meeting is according to law, held on the evening of the second Thursday in January, at the Senate Chamber in the Capitol.
The meetings continue to be held during the session of the Legislature, and as often as the nature of the business before the Board demands. They are adjourned from week to week.
It is, therefore, recommended to Academies to make all their communications
in due season. Applications for money to purchase books and apparatus should be sent in before the middle of February, and for all other purposes, before the middle of March. The Board usually adjourns about the 10th of April.
Special meetings can only be held, after ten days' notice has been given of the same in the State Paper. They are but seldom called, except for the consideration of matters referred to the Regents by the Legislature. There is, however, a standing order requiring a special meeting to be held on some day in October of each year.
