Trustees are leaders when they promote and sustain their colleges’ missions to assure student learning and make a difference for their communities. They are responsible for anticipating and responding to new challenges related to environmental and architectural sustainability, leadership turnover, accountability, and changing communities. Effective governing boards ensure that their colleges continue to provide high quality education and service.

Effective governing boards are created by dedicated, knowledgeable trustees and chief executives. Attendance at the Trustees Conference will strengthen the skills and knowledge required to lead your colleges and be accountable to your communities.
