Board of Trustees

History Nebraska is also a membership organization. Members elect twelve trustees, four from each of the state's three congressional districts, to staggered three-year terms. Three trustees are appointed by the Governor, one from each congressional district. Nominations are made by a board-appointed nominating committee. A liberal petition process allows other names to appear on the mail-in ballot.
