College Board

The College Board serves as an advisory group to the College's administration. The Board is made up individuals representing the College’s service area, which includes the cities of Colonial Heights, Hopewell and Petersburg, as well as the counties of Amelia, Charles City, Chesterfield, Dinwiddie, Prince George, Surry and Sussex.

Each jurisdiction has one member, with the exception of Petersburg, which has two members; Hopewell, which has three representatives; and Chesterfield, which also has three members. Board members are appointed by boards of supervisors and city councils from the College’s service area.

Board members serve as advocates for the College in their individual jurisdictions and facilitate communication between the College and its constituencies in those jurisdictions. Board members also advocate for the College during the General Assembly of Virginia legislative session.

Board members may serve two consecutive four-year terms. The chair and vice-chair of the Board are elected for two-year terms of office. The Board meets six times annually and rotates meeting locations between the College’s two campuses.
