Board of Trustees

Nicolet College is governed by a nine-member Board of Trustees.

State guidelines dictate that technical college boards must have employers, employees, a PreK-12 school superintendent, an elected government or school board member, and at-large members. There must also be a balance of male, female and minority representation on the board. The board must also include trustees from all portions of the Nicolet Area Technical College district to ensure fair geographic representation.

Appointments to the Nicolet College Board of Trustees are made by the county board chairpersons from Nicolet district counties, which include all of Oneida, Vilas and Forest counties and portions of Lincoln, Langlade and Iron counties.

Board Appointment Process

Each year, three members are appointed to serve three-year terms beginning July 1. The annual appointment process typically begins in February or March. Board members are not paid except for expenses incurred in the performance of their duties.

In the appointment process, equal consideration is given to the general population distribution within the NATC district, as well as to the distribution of women and minorities. Consideration is also given to representatives of business and industry as required for employer and employee representatives. NOTE: No two members of the NATC District Board may be officials of the same governmental unit, nor may any district board member be a member of the school board that employs the school district administrator member. All applicants are eligible to apply and be considered for the additional member category.
