The WHC’s twenty-five volunteer board members hail from all parts of the state. The Council seeks members whose experience, training, interests, skills, cultural background, and community ties bring diversity, energy, and expertise to our programs. Approximately half of the Council’s membership is drawn from the academic community and half from the community at large. New members are ordinarily elected to three-year terms at the Council’s February meeting, and assume office in June.  Six members are appointed by the Governor.
