Message from the College President
The Community College of Philadelphia Board of Trustees consists of 15 members. Members of the Board are appointed for terms of six years by the Mayor of the City of Philadelphia from a list submitted by the Nominating Panel established by Councilmanic Ordinance. Members of the Board are divided into three classes, and the term of each class expires on June 30 of the sixth year of the term. Members of such class continue to serve until their successors are appointed. The current Board membership is active in business, public service, law, healthcare and community businesses. Powers and duties of the Board of Trustees are set forth in Section 19-1905-A of the Public School code of 1949.
Board members participate in national, state and local civic professional organizations as well as charitable organizations.

All such meetings are open to the public.
