FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI –
Lakeshore Technical College is announcing three upcoming vacancies on the LTC District Board of Trustees. Board member applications will be accepted until 4 p.m. on March 9.
According to state statutes, applicants must be present at the LTC Board Appointment public hearing, during which they will be interviewed. The public hearing will take place March 30 at 5:30 p.m. in the Cleveland Training Room of the Lakeshore Building at LTC's Cleveland campus.
The LTC district board is comprised of two employers, two employees, three additional (at-large) members, a school district administrator and an elected official. Terms expire for three board posts each year. The three upcoming openings are for an employee member, an employer member, and a school district administrator member. The terms will run from July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2012.
An employee member is defined as a person who is employed but does not meet the criteria in the Employer category, or who is an officer or agent of a labor organization. An employee is one who receives earning as payment for personal services and is employed in the district. An employer member is defined as someone with the authority to determine or effectively recommend any of the following: hire, transfer, suspend, discipline, lay off, recall, adjust grievances, promote, discharge, assign, or reward. A school district administrator must be employed by a school board of a school district within the district. He or she must be a school district superintendent, supervising principal, or other person who acts as the administrative head of a school district and who holds an administrator's license.
To be eligible for consideration, each candidate must reside within the LTC district, which includes Manitowoc County less the portion of the School District of Chilton, the Brillion Public School District and the School District of Denmark; Sheboygan County less the portion of the School District of New Holstein, plus the Kiel Area School District in Calumet County; and the Cedar Grove-Belgium Area School District and the School District of Random Lake in Ozaukee County.
Equal consideration is given to the general population distribution within the LTC district as well as the distribution of women and minorities. To ensure board composition diversity as required by Wisconsin Technical College System policy, all three appointees must be from the southern portion of LTC's district in Ozaukee or Sheboygan counties and one must be a minority.
Each applicant must submit a notarized affidavit/application, resume and at least two letters of recommendation by 4 p.m. on March 9 to Foua Hang, Board Appointment Liaison, Lakeshore Technical College, 1290 North Ave., Cleveland, Wis. 53015.
