There is no cost to file, however candidates that choose to have candidate statements printed in sample ballots are responsible for the costs.

Board Meetings

The Board of Trustees generally meets the second Tuesday of every month at the Rocklin campus, with meetings held at the Nevada County campus and Tahoe Truckee campus at least once a year. All day planning meetings are held at least once per year, typically on a Saturday in the summer.


The compensation for board members is currently $400 per month, prorated for the number of meetings that month (see Board Policy 2725). Board members are entitled to reimbursement of Board-related, approved travel expenses (see Board Policy 2735). Board members may also elect to receive such health, life and welfare benefits as are extended to District management employees (see Board Policy 2730).
