Board of Trustees
The board of trustees is the sole statutory legislative governing body responsible for the control and operation of East Central College. The board includes six members, two from each sub-district.
Board members must be citizens of the United States, at least 21 years of age, a voter of the college district for at least one full year preceding the date of their election to the board, and a current resident of the sub-district which they represent. Though trustees file for office by sub-district they are elected by the voters of the district at large.
Sub-district one includes the school districts of St. Clair R-13, Lonedell R-14, Sullivan C-2, and Crawford County R-1 (Bourbon).
Sub-district two includes the school districts of Union R-11, New Haven, Franklin County R-2, Spring Bluff R-15, and Strain-Japan R-16.
Sub-district three includes all of the Washington School district.
Neither state statutes nor district policy limits the number of terms a member may serve.
Monthly meetings of the ECC board are normally held on the first Monday of the month. Meetings are not held in January or September.
