CMC Board of Trustees

The CMC Board of Trustees sets policies to help the college serve the communities of eight counties in the Colorado Rockies and the Western Slope

The Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees has seven at large seats which are elected by all the voters in the eight counties comprising the CMC District, plus a liaison representing Salida and Poncha Springs.

Board responsibilities include employing and evaluating the president, approving the college budget, certifying the mill levy, working with the college president to develop a strategic plan, monitoring the progress of the institution and acting in the best interests of the college as required by statute.

One resident from each of the following counties is elected to the board: Eagle, Lake, Pitkin, Routt and Summit. An east Garfield and a west Garfield county resident are also selected by voters to serve. Those elected serve four-year terms.

The Board usually meets every other month at locations around the district. The College also serves three additional counties as assigned by the state; they include Chaffee, Grand and Jackson.
