Membership on the Council will include representation from business, industry, government, education, and residents. Members will be experienced in their occupations, knowledgeable of the trends in their professions, aware of the needs in their communities, and committed to promoting higher education for residents in the community.
Up to 50 members may be invited to serve on the PCAC by the college president. Council members will serve a two-year term that may be renewed at the discretion of the college president. A chairperson will be selected by the president each year.
