|Trustees name new class of UNC Board of Visitors|
|Friday, June 15, 2012|
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Board of Trustees has tapped a new class of alumni and friends to serve on the UNC Board of Visitors, one of the most active volunteer groups at the University. The new members begin their terms July 1.
The new members will become part of an approximately 170-member board that assists the Board of Trustees and Chancellor in a range of activities that help advance the University, including marketing, top student recruitment, government relations and fundraising. Also, members serve as ambassadors, informing their communities about what is going on at Carolina and, in turn, keeping the University administration informed about what they hear about Carolina in their communities.
Board of Visitors members serve four-year terms. Each year, as members rotate off, the Board of Trustees elects a class of new members. Selected to chair the Board of Visitors beginning July 1 is William “Bill” Hobbs of Charlotte, and selected as vice chair is Dr. Michael Zollicoffer of Baltimore, Md.
The new members are listed below, alphabetically by North Carolina county and by state.
