How much time elapsed from the time Dwight Phillips told the board that the athletes favored Hightower and the issuing of the 11-1 BOD vote to nominate her?
I wasn't checking the time exactly, but we had probably been meeting for over an hour... there was some random business involving approval of minutes and some financial stuff, then a lengthy discussion about the Bumbalough DQ and the vote on that, then a few random things, then we were gearing up to hear presentation from all of the candidates for the various IAAF positions (the Board was selecting nominees for four other IAAF councils, in addition to the main council), then right before that got underway, Stephanie asked Dwight Phillips to introduce himself as the new AAC Chair. He almost immediately stated the athletes wanted Stephanie. She tried to shush him and act like she had no idea he was going to say that and that it was out of line for him to say that.
Then we heard presentations from all of the other candidates (Bob and Stephanie did not present, at least not during the public portion of the meeting) then the board went into closed session.
The meeting was supposed to start at 11am, but probably started around 11:30 because people were eating (food was brought in) and the closing session ran long.
They probably went into closed session ~1:30. I had to leave to catch a flight around 2ish. I texted Bill Roe at 3:30 and he had also not heard the results of the vote. The press release was put out at 4:06pm.
So that's a painfully long and boring way of saying that Dwight probably made that statement ~1pm and the Board made their decision sometime between then and 4pm.
I do not know if the Board asked Dwight to come back in to the room during the closed session for additional questions or if that was all there was to it.
The Board does not put anything about what happens during executive session in the minutes.
