Montgomery College Seeks Applicants for Board of Trustees Post

The nominating committee for the Montgomery College Board of Trustees is now accepting applications from Montgomery County residents interested in serving a six-year term that will begin on July 1, 2008.

Citizens 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, by electronic mail, to Fred S. Evans, chairman of the nominating committee, no later than Thursday, November 15, 2007, at 5 p.m. at the e-mail address noted below.

The Board of Trustees is the governance body for Montgomery College, which serves nearly 60,000 students annually, through both credit programs and noncredit, continuing education courses. The community college has campuses in Takoma Park/Silver Spring, Rockville, and Germantown, and a Workforce Development and Continuing Education division with training centers in Wheaton and Gaithersburg, along with a Central Administration building in Rockville and other off-campus locations.

The members of the Montgomery College Board of Trustees are appointed by the Governor, upon recommendation of a five-person nominating committee comprised of local residents who are not currently serving the College in any official capacity. With the exception of the student Board member, the Governor’s appointments are subject to State Senate confirmation.

Persons who wish to be considered for a Trustee position may not be employed by the College in any capacity. Applicants must attend a one-hour orientation session at Montgomery College before being interviewed by the nominating committee. Trustees devote in excess of 240 hours per year as a Board member and receive no compensation.

Letters of intent, resumes, and other materials, including a telephone number and e-mail address, should be sent by e-mail to: fevans424@comcast.net. Applications will not be accepted at the College. Submissions must be received by Thursday, November 15, 2007, at 5 p.m.

For additional information about the nominating process, contact Fred Evans at 301-424-5169 or Arlean Graham in the Montgomery College Board of Trustees Office at 240-567-5272, or via e-mail at: arlean.graham@montgomerycollege.edu.
