The purpose of the State Board of Community Colleges committees is to facilitate the work of the State Board. Standing Committees are typically comprised of board members with liaisons from the NC Community College Presidents Association and NC Community College Trustees Association (non-voting members). The liaisons provide insight from the local college perspective. The Committee meetings are typically the Thursday before a full board meeting. The Board discusses and/or approves a variety of items relating to Programs, Business and Finance, Policy and Governance, Auditing, the System Strategic Plan, and other topics under their purview.
