18A:64A-9. Qualifications of appointed members of boards, terms of office, etc.; filling vacancies; no compensation of members
18A:64A-9. Appointed members of the board of trustees shall have been residents of the county for a period of four years prior to said appointment, and no elected public official or employee of the county college shall serve as a voting member of the board. The term of office of appointed members, except for the first appointments, shall be for four years. Each member shall serve until his successor shall have been appointed and qualified.
Vacancies shall be filled in the same manner as the original appointment for the remainder of the unexpired term. Any appointed member may be removed by the board of chosen freeholders of the appointing county for cause upon notice and opportunity to be heard. Members shall serve without compensation but shall be entitled to be reimbursed for all reasonable and necessary expenses.
A voting member of a board of trustees shall not be eligible to accept employment as an employee of the college at which he has served as a member of the board for a period of two years following resignation or expiration of his term as a member.
In the case of a county college established by one county, the terms of office of members initially appointed to the board of trustees by the appointing authority of the county shall be as follows: two persons shall receive terms of one year; two, terms of two years; two, terms of three years; and two, terms of four years.
In the case of a county college established by more than one county, the terms of the members initially appointed to the board of trustees shall be fixed so that as nearly as possible, one-quarter of the appointed members will receive terms of four years, one-quarter terms of three years, one-quarter terms of two years and the remainder terms of one year. Such terms shall be allocated by the commission among the participating counties, in accordance with the number of members on the board of trustees apportioned to each county, starting with the terms of four years, by allocating one of such terms to each of the participating counties in alphabetical order of the names of such counties, and continuing, still in such order, with the terms of three years, the terms of two years and the terms of one year.
Members initially appointed to the board may serve from the time of their respective appointments, but the term of such office shall be deemed to commence as of November 1 of the year in which the appointment was made.
