Martinsville Bulletin: Board members to consider bylaw changes for NCI

December 8, 2016

MARTINSVILLE–A member of the General Assembly could soon serve as chairman of the New College Institute’s Board of Directors. The group will meet on Friday to consider the proposal, which would require changes to NCI’s bylaws.

It is not customary for lawmakers to chair boards that oversee higher education institutions, said state Sen. Emmett Hanger, R-Mount Solon. Hanger is a current member of the NCI board.

While it may not be normal, Hanger and other board members feel that having a lawmaker chair NCI’s board would help the institute stay abreast of legislative issues that may affect it, as well as keep General Assembly members informed of its progress, as it evolves.

Hanger said that he, state Sen. Bill Stanley and Del. Charles Poindexter, both Franklin County Republicans, and Del. Danny Marshall, R-Danville, have discussed the idea since NCI’s last board meeting in late October.
