About the Board

The CCSNH Board of Trustees is designed to be broadly representative of the NH communities and industry sectors that CCSNH serves. Members are drawn from business & industry, education, healthcare, law enforcement, career and technical education, the mechanical trades, technology, CCSNH employees, students and alumni, the community service sector and the public. The 24 voting members of the board are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the NH Executive Council. The Board sets strategic goals for the System and provides oversight at the policy level for the colleges within the System. Members of the public can access Board of Trustees meeting schedule, agendas and minutes of previous meetings. Click here for board policies, system policies and approved fees.
