The Student Government President serves as an ex-officio, non-voting member.

The President submits recommended policies and policy decisions to the Board, along with program, financial and other resource recommendations. As elected, the President also serves as executive officer of and secretary for the Board.

Craven Community College is fortunate to have an extremely dedicated and supportive Board.
