Board of Trustees Meeting Schedule

MCC is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees who are elected for staggered six-year terms, and one non-voting student trustee who serves a one-year term. As the legislative body of the College District, the Board of Trustees is responsible for the development and adoption of District policies and for making related decisions.

At this time, regular Board Meetings of the McHenry County College Board of Trustees will be held in the MCC Conference Center (A211-A215). These meetings are open to the public; however in-person seating capacity is restricted due to the existing Restore Illinois gathering guidelines.

Due to the current pandemic, additional protocol is in place to enter MCC's campus, including a health screening with temperature check, requirement to wear a face covering over nose and mouth at all times while on campus, and adherence to 6-foot physical distancing guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

No flash photography during meetings please.

August 27 Board of Trustees Meetings - Special Notice

On May 29, 2020, Governor Pritzker issued the fourth Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation for all counties in the State of Illinois. In consideration of this and due to the COVID-19 health pandemic, MCC President Gabbard has determined that a fully accessible in-person meeting this evening is not practical or prudent. In accordance with Public Act 101-640, this meeting will thus be held without the physical presence of a quorum of trustees at the regular meeting location. The regular meeting location is the Board Room at McHenry County College, Room A217, 8900 U.S. Hwy 14, Crystal Lake, Illinois 60012. Additionally, in consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic and present health protocols, including limitations on physical gatherings, it is not feasible to have a trustee, chief administrative officer, or chief legal counsel physically present at this meeting, or to allow members of the public to attend the meeting in-person. Members of the public may provide public comment and access all open portions of the meeting via the Zoom link and accompanying information located below.

All comments will be provided to trustees prior to the meeting and will be reflected in meeting minutes. Public comments that are appropriate, compliant with Board policy, and reasonable in length will be read aloud during the public comment section of the meeting.
