Affidavit of Qualifications for
Wisconsin Technical College District Board Membership
Wisconsin Statutes establish requirements for the process of selecting members who will
serve on the district boards of the 16 local colleges that make up the Wisconsin Technical
College System. Applicants must submit this affidavit if applying for any of the 16
WTCS Boards, except Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC).
Do not use this affidavit if you are seeking to serve on the MATC Board. Those applying
to serve on the MATC Board must apply using the specific MATC affidavit form
available at Documents for District Board Applicants.
To become a candidate who is considered to serve on the board of a Wisconsin
Technical College you must:
1. Submit a properly completed, signed and notarized affidavit of your qualifications
to the district board appointment committee by the deadline established in the
published announcement requesting applications;
2. Attend a district board appointment committee public hearing in person and be
interviewed; and
3. Submit at least two letters of reference supporting your candidacy.
If approved to serve on a district board, you are required to abide by the State of
Wisconsin Code of Ethics and must file annual financial disclosure statements with the
State of Wisconsin Ethics Commission.
Board members serve without salary or per diem. Actual and necessary expenses
incurred in the performance of their duties are reimbursed.
Each year, three members are appointed to serve a three-year term that begins on July 1.
According to Wisconsin Statutes, each of the 15 boards (excluding MATC) must include
the following nine members:
3 additional members;
2 employers;
2 employees;
1 school district administrator; and
1 elected official.
