Nominating Committee. AGB Standing Committee Series.
Gale, Robert L.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
The responsibilities and structure of the college governing board's nominating committee are discussed. Five responsibilities are addressed: helping the board determine its composition in terms of influence, diversity, and talents; maintaining a viable list of candidates and cultivating top prospects; overseeing the orientation and deployment of new board members; reviewing the performance of incumbent trustees and overseeing periodic reviews by the board of its own performance; and nominating and reviewing board officers' performance annually. Usually a nominating committee should have seven to nine members, depending on the board's size. Because of the need for fund raising, various business and financial communities should especially be represented by appropriate trustees. Working procedures and points of discussion that should be covered by the committee are identified. A sample bylaw provision for the nominating committee is included, along with a form for profiling the committee, including age groups, sex, race, areas of expertise, geographical distribution, connections with the college, financial status (salaried/nonsalaried), and length of service. A short list of resources and other titles in the standing committee series are included. (SW)
