THE board of trustees of the Northern Marianas Trade Institute held an emergency meeting on Wednesday morning to discuss “several pertinent matters.”

Agnes M. McPhetres

Chief executive officer Agnes McPhetres reported that all NMTI employees have been furloughed, thus making them eligible to apply for federal assistance which “should be good until the end of July.”

She added that she herself has taken leave without pay, but will continue to volunteer her time to work for the betterment of the institution. She has requested that the board follow suit.

On another note, it was stated by the CEO that 14 employees have requested, in writing, to be allowed to continue providing services to NMTI because “they still have to do things for the program.”

These 14 employees have also volunteered to continue working, even without pay, and have agreed that NMTI will not be responsible for any accidents during their work period.

“So many of them are teachers. The others are [on the administrative staff of] NMTI,” McPhetres added, referring to director of administrative services Frank Rabauliman, interim director of instruction Rodante Yumul, and Jeanette Villagomez of student support services.

McPhetres said she and these employees meet each week to discuss what must be done in terms of “the policy that will be submitted to the board…and the implementation of the policy of each of the divisions.”

She said the work that they do includes scheduling, preparing the Individualized Certificate Program for students, and maintaining the facility and the institution’s equipment.
