Governing Body InformationLength of Board Appointments and Term Limits
Trustees are limited to six (6) years (2 terms) of consecutive service on the Board. However, in order to achieve continuity, the Board may elect to allow a third term of service for up to three (3) Board members. No Board member may exceed nine (9) consecutive years of Board service. This requirement excludes ex officio members of the Board.
When New Board Appointments are Made
New Board members are nominated and appointed whenever needed to fill exisitng vacancies. Appointments are recommended by the Nominating Committee of the Board and approved by the full Board. The timing of Board member appointments is planned in such a way as to stagger the exit of existing Board members and the recruitment and entry of new Board members. Since terms of service are for two, three-year terms, there will generally be two to three (25-30%) Board replacements made each year.
Board members serve without compensation.
