Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees are appointed to four-year terms by the County of San Diego Board of Supervisors. Prior to the expiration of their term, if the Trustee is seeking re-appointment, the Trustee will submit an "Application for County of San Diego Board" to the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors requesting re-appointment. The appropriate Supervisor will review the information and then request action by the Board of Supervisors at a regular Board meeting. If you are interested in becoming a Trustee for the North County Cemetery District, please contact one of the Board of Supervisors to express your interest.

The major function of the trustees is to set policy, define goals and objectives, adopt rules and regulations, and act as legal custodian for District property. The Board has employed a General Manager to carry out policy, direct District operations, provide day-to-day supervision of staff and control and administer District expenditures. The Board and General Manager are required to take ethics training every two-years.
