Judgment of Compliance: The College certifies COMPLIANCE.
The chief executive officer of Wayne Community College is the President of the college. The President is elected by the Board of Trustees (NCGS 115D-20(1)) and is an employee of the Board and, therefore, is not eligible to serve as a board member. The Board can elect a chairman only from its membership (NCGS 115D-18). The President’s primary responsibility is to the institution. The duties and responsibilities of the President are delineated in the Board's by-laws.
