The Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees shall consist of no fewer than 25 and no more than 27 voting trustees.  23 voting Trustees shall be selected to serve three-year terms: Ten shall be Trustees who are members of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations or presbyteries within the bounds of the Synod of the South Atlantic; Five shall be Trustees who are members of Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregations or presbyteries, and who are first nominated by the Trusteeship and Honorary Degrees Sub-committee of the Administrative Committee and appointed by the General Assembly Mission Council; Eight shall be Trustees elected by the Presbyterian College Board of Trustees.  The Presbyterian College Alumni Association shall select two Trustees; and the Board of Trustees may elect up to two Consulting Trustees.

The Board of Trustees is in the process of transitioning to new governance procedures.  The transition will take place by normal attrition over a period of several years to bring the trustee membership into compliance with new bylaws.
