Montgomery College Seeks Board of Trustees Members

Applicants Asked to Submit Required Materials No Later than Oct. 5, 2012

The Montgomery College Board of Trustees Nominating Committee is seeking applicants to fill two vacancies on the Board of Trustees. The two vacancies are full, six-year term appointments effective July 1, 2013.

Individuals interested in serving on the Montgomery College Board of Trustees should submit a letter of intent and a resume, together with any supporting references or other documentation, to Mr. Fred S. Evans, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, by October 5, 2012, at the e-mail address noted below. The Board of Trustees is the governance body for Montgomery College which serves over 60,000 credit and non-credit students annually on three campuses in Germantown, Rockville, and Takoma Park/Silver Spring; a collegewide Workforce Development & Continuing Education unit; training centers in Gaithersburg and Wheaton; a central services unit; and other off campus sites.

The members of the Montgomery College Board of Trustees are appointed by the governor upon the recommendation of a five-person nominating committee of local residents 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.

Persons wishing to be considered for these vacancies may not be employed by Montgomery College in any capacity. Applicants must attend a one-hour orientation session at Montgomery College before being interviewed by the Nominating Committee. 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 e-mail address, must be sent to Mr. Evans at fredevans1970@gmail.com. The deadline for submission is Friday, October 5, 2012. Additional information about the nominating process is available from Mr. Evans at 301-424-5169 or Ms. Arlean Graham, in the Montgomery College Board of Trustees Office, at 240-567-7120.

Additionally, the Board Office and the Board of Trustees will host a reception on Monday, September 24, 2012, for potential trustee candidates. This first-ever event will be held 6–7 p.m. in the Trustee Board Room, #115, located at 900 Hungerford Drive in Rockville.

This session is an opportunity for those who are interested in becoming a Montgomery College trustee to learn from the current trustees. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Ms. Graham at trustees@montgomerycollege.edu.
