The Board of Trustees

Elected by College Board member delegates, the Board of Trustees is the governing body of the College Board.

Trustee responsibilities include:

  • Making legal and fiduciary decisions
  • Approving the organization's mission, strategic goals, and objectives
  • Establishing policies related to membership, programs, and services
  • Approving the annual budget and major program fees
  • Advising the president, who is responsible for the management of the organization

The Trustee Committee on Nominations draws up the slate of candidates for the 12 Trustees elected directly by the members. Nine Trustees are elected by the regional assemblies. Three Trustees are elected by the national assemblies. In addition, the chairs of the three national assemblies serve on the Board of Trustees. The chair, the vice chair, and the immediately preceding chair of the Board of Trustees and the president of the College Board serve as members ex officio.

The chair and vice-chair serve two-year terms; other Trustees generally serve four-year terms. The Board of Trustees oversees a number of Committees and Advisory Panels.
