Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(from Ch. 122, par. 102-1)
There is created the Illinois Community College Board
hereinafter referred to as the "State Board". The State Board shall
consist of 12 members as follows: a nonvoting student member selected by
the recognized advisory committee of students of the Illinois Community
College Board, this student to serve for a term of one year beginning on
July 1 of each year, except that the student member initially selected
shall serve a term beginning on the date of such selection and expiring on
the next succeeding June 30, and except that any student member or former
student member may be selected by the recognized advisory committee of
students of the State Board to serve a second term as the nonvoting student
member of the State Board; and 11 members, one of whom shall be a senior
citizen age 60 or over, to be appointed by the Governor by and with the
advice and consent of the Senate. Beginning on July 1, 2005, one of the 11 members appointed by the Governor, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, must be a faculty member at an Illinois public community college. Also beginning on July 1, 2005, one of the 11 members appointed by the Governor, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, must be a member of the board of trustees of a public community college district. After the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly, one of the 11 members to be appointed by the Governor, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, must be the president of a public community college, the Chancellor of City Colleges of Chicago (Community College District No. 508), or the Chief Executive Officer of Illinois Eastern Community Colleges (Community College District No. 529). The membership requirements set forth in this Section apply only to the State Board and shall have no effect on the membership of the board of trustees of a community college district. The members first appointed under this
amendatory Act of 1984 shall serve for a term of 6 years. After the
expiration of the terms of the office of the members first appointed to the
State Board, their respective successors shall hold office for a term of 6
years and until their successors are qualified and seated. In the event of
vacancies on the State Board in offices appointed by the Governor occurring
during a recess of the Senate, the Governor shall have the power to make
temporary appointments until the next meeting of the Senate, when the
vacancy shall be filled by nomination to be confirmed by the Senate.
