North Carolina Central Meeting About Chancellor Search Questioned

Press advocates are questioning a North Carolina Central University meeting.

They say the university's Board of Trustees might have broken the law by giving less than 24 hours notice for the recent meeting to discuss candidates for chancellor.

Public bodies are required to give 48 hours notice for a meeting unless an emergency arises. The North Carolina Press Association says the meeting didn't meet that criteria.

But North Carolina Central officials say it was an emergency meeting, and they say the meeting's time and location were announced as soon as they were given details.
