Montgomery College Seeks Applicants for Board of Trustees
According to a news release, the vacancy is a full six-year term appointment effective July 1, 2016 and applications are due in by Oct. 22.
The BOT is the governance body for Montgomery College. The Board serves over 60,000 credit and non-credit students annually on three campuses in Germantown, Rockville, and Takoma Park/Silver Spring; a Workforce Development and Continuing Education unit; training centers in Gaithersburg and Wheaton; a central services unit; and other off campus sites.
Members are appointed by the governor of Maryland, upon the recommendation of a five-person nominating committee of local residents who are not currently serving Montgomery College in any official capacity. With the exception of the student board member, the governor’s appointments are subject to Maryland State Senate confirmation.

Each trustee typically devotes in excess of 200 hours per year as a board member and receives no compensation.
The letter of intent, resume, and other materials, including a telephone number and email address, must be sent to Fred Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is October 22nd.
