Community College District Governing Board
The Governing Board is the official elected body of the College District. Its primary role is to set the overall operating policies of the College District. The Chancellor, who is appointed by the Governing Board, carries out these policies. The five Board members are elected for four year terms by registered voters in geographical divisions. There is also one student member selected by the student body, who serves for one year. The student member has an advisory vote.
The Governing Board typically meets on the fourth Wednesday of the month in the District Office Board Room at the George R. Gordon Education Center, located at 500 Court Street, Martinez. Most meetings begin with a closed session at 5:00 p.m., followed by open session at 6:00 p.m. Three study sessions are held each year in April, July and November. These meetings typically begin with closed session at 3:00 p.m., followed by open session at 4:00 p.m.
