Public Comment

Board of Trustees By-Laws provide that individuals or groups wishing to present any matter of concern pertaining to the College at a Board Meeting are to submit written request to the President of the College at least ten (10) working days prior to the regularly scheduled public meeting. Upon recommendation by the President and approval of the Board Chair, the matter may be included on the agenda for the meeting.

In addition, a public comment period is offered at each public Board Meeting. Anyone wishing to speak at this time must complete a request form before the meeting begins (forms are available immediately prior to the meeting). Guidelines adopted by the Board for public comment specify a 3-minute limit for each citizen or group. Topics for discussion must relate to College concerns. Comments which involve personal attacks, employment or employee-related matters, real estate acquisitions, or which contain unprofessional or inappropriate language or content are not allowed. For more information on the Board of Trustees' public comment guidelines, contact the Director for Marketing and Public Relations at 443-412-2408.
