Gateway extends deadline for board of trustee applications

Racine Campus

The application period for an appointment to the Gateway Board of Trustees has been extended to noon, Nov. 26.

Since the college is closed Nov. 23, the original deadline to apply for the seat, officials decided to extend it to noon the next open business day, which is Nov. 26.

The short-term board commitment begins Feb. 21, 2019 and ends June 30, 2019.

The open seat is a Racine County Employee seat. In general, this is someone employed in Racine County, but does not meet the classification of an employer member, and lives within the Gateway Technical College District. An officer or agent of a labor organization automatically qualifies as an employee.

This position must be filled by a female in order to meet Gateway’s Plan of Representation requirements which state a board of trustees shall consist of at least three female members.

Applications must be notarized, include two letters of reference, and applicants must be present at the 5 p.m., Dec. 14, meeting of the appointment committee at the Burlington Center, 496 McCanna Parkway. Chairpersons of the Kenosha County, Walworth County and Racine County boards of supervisors make up the interview committee.

Those interested in applying can obtain the application/affidavit packet:

  • From Kelly Bartlett, Room I 201 in the Inspire Center on the Kenosha Campus, 3520-30th Ave, Kenosha.
