Membership Terms

Updated by PBC on November 7, 2018

Appointed members (who are not members by virtue of their position) will serve for a maximum of two years. These members, faculty, classified staff, and student representatives, are appointed in alternating years, staggering the rotation of members on and off the Council.  Staggering appointments will assure continuity of knowledge on the Council. Members will be asked to serve on work groups or ad hoc committees as needed (based on availability of time) for the balance of service. Work groups (when needed) consist of four, and a minimum of two, PBC members.

All appointments will be made by June preceding the terms of appointment.

Student terms will be for one year (August 15 – June 30) with appointments made in August.

Note: Members who serve by virtue of their position do vote, with the exception of the college president who is non-voting; all other members are elected/selected by their constituencies and do vote.

Every member (excluding the college president), in order to retain their membership, is required to attend a yearly orientation. The annual orientation will take place no later than the second meeting of the the Fall semester.

In addition to the PBC membership, the orientation is open to the District Board of Trustees and the whole campus community.. This training is under the purview of the Offices of Planning, Research, Innovation and Effectiveness (PRIE) and Administrative Services.
