Mandatory Trustee Training

Public Act 99-0692 requires all community college trustees elected or appointed after January 1, 2017, to complete four hours of training during their first, third, and fifth years in office. In order for a community college trustee to obtain credit for training, the program must be offered by the Illinois Community College Trustees Association or a provider approved by the Illinois Community College Board.

ICCTA offered an in-person, four-hour training on June 7, 2019 that met the requirements of P.A. 99-0692. That training was recorded onto a DVD set and made available to each ICCTA member college at no charge. Additional copies are available at $100 per DVD set. Non-member colleges may purchase the DVD set for $140.

The Trustees Association anticipates offering another mandatory training following the April 2021 trustee elections.
