Council of Member Institutions
The Council of Member Institutions is composed of institutional representatives appointed by the chief officer of each of the member institutions plus the College of Lake County. The Council of Member Institutions elects its chairperson and such other officers as it sees fit, except that the chairperson, as a Governing Board member, cannot serve more than three consecutive two-year terms. The Council considers a variety of matters including recommendations from various Center committees, and in turn advises and assists the Board in matters such as:
- facilitating inter-institutional communication.
- coordinating academic programs.
- identifying needed instructional support facilities and services.
- assessing local needs.
- electing representatives to the Governing Board.
