In those cases when the President of the College is unavailable to perform any of his/her duties, the President shall appoint an executive officer to conduct the business of the President in his/her absence. The acting president shall be a member of the executive staff and appointed in the order designated in the Acting President policy. The Acting President will receive a daily monetary stipend in accordance with the terms in the Acting President Policy. The daily monetary stipend is the difference between the Acting President per diem rate and the actual executive staff member per diem rate in effect at September 1 of each year. The annual Acting President per diem rate is determined on September 1 and is calculated by taking the base rate utilized in the prior year and multiplying the base rate by any COLA percentage increase received by exempt staff in the current year. The monetary stipend payment will vary by Acting President because the actual executive staff member per diem rates are different. The rate is reviewed and approved each year by the President of the College.
