Transition Agreement fails to garner super majority

The members of the Baylor Alumni Association (BAA) voted today not to approve the Transition Agreement between the BAA and Baylor University with a vote of 830 in favor of the agreement and 668 voting “no,” representing a “yes” vote of 55 percent. A two-thirds approval of members present was required to pass the measure.

The Baylor Alumni Association has released the following statement from Board of Directors president Collin Cox ’97:

    “The vote today by the membership of the Baylor Alumni Association (BAA) not to approve the Transition Agreement between the BAA and Baylor University means uncertain times ahead for the BAA. We are disappointed that the compromise represented by the Transition Agreement did not garner sufficient votes to be implemented. This may mean the loss of permission to use the Baylor name. But we respect our members’ decision.

    Despite the outcome, we want to express our sincere gratitude for the selfless service of so many loyal members of the Baylor family. We also are grateful that almost 1,500 voters came to express their opinions. The BAA board of directors will be meeting in the coming days to determine what options are available to us.”
