by Public Relations and Marketing | Published Feb 26, 2020

The Board of Trustees of the College of Lake County Community College District 532 (CLC) is in the process of filling a vacancy on the board created by the recent resignation of one of its members, Dr. Catherine M. Finger.  Dr. Finger was elected to the Board in April 2017, and her term of office expires in 2023. The individual who fills this vacancy will be appointed by the members of the current board and will serve as a trustee until a successor is elected to serve the remainder of the unexpired term at the next Consolidated General Election for open trustee positions on April 6, 2021.

CLC is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees elected by the voters of Community College District 532. To be eligible to serve as a trustee, applicants must be: (1) a citizen of the United States; (2) 18 years or older; and (3) a resident of Illinois and District 532, which includes most of Lake County, Illinois, for at least one year immediately preceding the appointment.

Interested persons should send a one-page letter (fax, email, delivery or mail) to:

  • Dr. William M. Griffin, Chair, Board of Trustees
  • c/o Karen Senase, Executive Assistant to the President
  • College of Lake County
  • President’s Office, Room C215
  • 19351 W. Washington St.
  • Grayslake, IL 60030
  • Fax: (847) 543-3017
  • Email:

The letter should state why the individual is interested in serving on the board, their relevant qualifications and experience, and any relationships or affiliations they have, or have had, with the college. Applications must be received by the college by 4 p.m. March 26, 2020, in order to be considered.  It is anticipated that the Board of Trustees will appoint an individual to fill the vacancy at its April 7, 2020 board meeting.
