Blackhawk Technical College is governed by a nine-member District Board appointed by the Rock and Green County Board Chairs. Pursuant to Wisconsin Statute, the District Board consists of two employer members, two employee members, three additional members, one elected official member who holds a state or local office, and one school district administrator. Board members serve staggered three-year terms.
Each year, three members are appointed to serve three-year terms beginning July 1. The annual appointment process typically begins in February or March. Board members are not paid except for expenses incurred in the performance of their duties.
In the appointment process, equal consideration is given to the general population distribution within the BTC district, as well as to the distribution of women and minorities. Consideration is also given to representatives of business and industry as required for employer and employee representatives. NOTE: No two members of the BTC District Board may be officials of the same governmental unit, nor may any district board member be a member of the school board that employs the school district administrator member. All applicants are eligible to apply and be considered for the additional member category.
