Montgomery College Seeks New Members for Board of Trustees Application Materials Due on October 29, 2010
The nominating committee for the Montgomery College Board of Trustees is currently accepting applications to fill two positions on the board. Successful applicants will serve six-year terms, starting July 1, 2011, and running through June 30, 2017.
The Board of Trustees is the governance body for Montgomery College, which serves nearly 60,000 credit and noncredit students on campuses in Germantown, Rockville, and Takoma Park/Silver Spring. The College also has a Workforce Development and Continuing Education division with training centers in Wheaton and Gaithersburg and other off-campus sites.
Montgomery County residents interested in serving on the board should submit a letter of intent and a resume, together with supporting references and other documentation, to the chairman of the nominating committee, Fred S. Evans, by Friday, October 29, 2010, at the e-mail address below.
The nominating committee recommends board members to the governor of Maryland, who appoints them to their positions. The committee is comprised of local residents who do not serve Montgomery College in any official capacity. With the exception of the student board member, the appointments are subject to Maryland Senate confirmation.
Applicants may not be employed by Montgomery College and must attend a one-hour orientation session at the College before an interview with the nominating committee. Trustees spend more than 240 hours each year as a board member and receive no compensation.
A letter of intent, resume and other materials, including a telephone number and e-mail address, should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is Friday, October 29, 2010. For more information about the nominating process, contact Fred Evans at 301-424-5169 or Arlean Graham, from the Montgomery College Board Office, at 240-567-7120.
