CHULA VISTA, CA – The Southwestern Community College District (SWC) today announced it is seeking applications from residents within the College District's boundaries to serve as an appointed member of the Governing Board to fill the balance of a four-year term which would be up for election November 2012.
A vacancy occurred due to the resignation of Board Member Nick Aguilar (Seat 3) on June 22, 2011, effective June 30, 2011.

In accordance with the law, the appointment must be made prior to Monday, August 22, or 60 days from Aguilar's resignation.
Residents interested in being considered for the vacancy can find application materials at www.swccd.edu/govboardapp or by contacting the Superintendent/President's office at (619) 482 – 6301.
The Board will convene special meetings on Tuesday, August 2 and 9 to interview candidates. Meeting schedules and agendas will be posted on the College District's web site.
