Board of Directors

Each member was selected and approved by the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia. The board’s purpose is to advise on program direction, serve as a check and balance for the development and implementation of college goals, objectives, policies and procedures, and advocate within the community issues of importance to the technical college system, and Georgia’s workforce development efforts. The West Georgia Technical College board of directors meets at 11:30 a.m. on the third Thursday of each month at alternating locations.
