Individuals interested in serving in one of two open positions on the Auburn University Board of Trustees may now submit their nomination information to a selection committee.
Gov. Robert Bentley, president of the Auburn Board, recently announced the nomination process. The positions are currently held by John Blackwell representing District 8 in north Alabama and Sam Ginn in an at-large position. Blackwell and Ginn are not eligible to serve additional terms.
"As in the past, members of the committee are looking for leaders who are forward-looking, service-oriented and dedicated to furthering Auburn’s instruction, research and extension missions," Bentley wrote in a letter to the Auburn family.
Nomination information should be submitted by Nov. 9. The selection committee is composed of the governor or his designee, Bill Stone and Dr. Gaines Thomas representing the Auburn Alumni Association’s Board of Directors, and Auburn Trustees Raymond Harbert and Jimmy Rane. After interviewing up to three nominees for each position, the committee will make appointments, which are subject to confirmation by the State Senate.
For more information, please see Gov. Bentley’s announcement.
