The community is encouraged to attend the North Idaho College Board of Trustees Candidate's Forum at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 25 in the Lake Coeur d'Alene Room of Edminster Student Union Building on NIC's main campus. Two positions are open for the Nov. 2 general election. Rolly Williams is an incumbent running unopposed for Position A on the board. Williams served as athletics director and head coach of the NIC men's basketball team from 1961 to 1996 and has served on the NIC Board of Trustees since 1998. Three candidates are running for Position B on the board. Jim Hammond is the city administrator and former mayor of Post Falls. He is also a former board member of the Idaho State Board of Education. Christie Wood currently serves as sergeant of the Coeur d'Alene Police Department and on the school board for Coeur d'Alene School District 271. Tyler Allen Smith is a current NIC student majoring in business administration. The 90-minute forum is an NIC Popcorn Forum event cosponsored by the NIC chapter of the American Association of University Professors, the Associated Students of NIC and the NIC Faculty Assembly. The forum will include candidate responses to five predetermined questions as well as audience questions followed by a reception. The NIC Board of Trustees is the governing board of the college. It is a volunteer five-member board elected from within Kootenai County for staggered six-year terms. The board is charged with determining the broad general policies that govern the operation of the college, selecting and appointing the president of the college and approving annual budgets.
