CMC board of trustees welcomes new member
Daniel Hanin, a Steamboat Springs attorney, has become the newest member of the Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees, effective Jan. 29. On the college’s seven-member board he will represent Routt County, within the area served by Steamboat school district RE-2. Hanin was the sole applicant to put his name forward when the college’s elected board of trustees advertised in December for a replacement for trustee Rob Dick. Dick, who formerly represented Routt County on the CMC board, resigned in December as he is moving out of the district. Residency in the area being represented, within the college’s 12,000-square-mile district, is a requirement for board membership.Hanin was selected to fill the vacant seat for the remainder of Dick’s term. That seat will be up for election in November.The Colorado Mountain College Board of Trustees has seven at-large seats, which are elected by all the voters in the six counties constituting the CMC District. Board responsibilities include employing and evaluating the president, approving the college budget, establishing college goals and monitoring the progress of the institution. One resident from each of the following counties is elected to the board: Eagle, Lake, Pitkin, Routt and Summit. An East Garfield and a West Garfield County resident are also selected by voters to serve. Those elected serve four-year terms. The board usually meets on a monthly basis at locations around the district.
