The Board of Trustees are appointed to four-year terms by the County of Orange Board of Supervisors. Prior to the expiration of their term, if the Trustee is seeking re-appointment, the Trustee will send a letter of intent to the appointing Board of Supervisor requesting re-appointment. The Board of Supervisor will review the information and then request action by the Board of Supervisors at a regular Board meeting.
