The American College of Greece Governance: Board of Trustees
The American College of Greece is governed by a voluntary board of trustees – currently twenty-six members. The board holds overall stewardship responsibility for the College, delegating primary operating authority to the president of the College (an ex officio, non-voting member of the board), whom the board selects and regularly evaluates. No voting members of the board receive financial compensation for their service; indeed, all members are expected to support the College through their personal philanthropy. (Numbers in parentheses below indicate year of joining the board.)
