43 new members named
to UNC Board of Visitors

CHAPEL HILL – The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Board of Trustees has elected 43 new members to the UNC Board of Visitors.

The Board of Visitors is an active group of 160 volunteers who help the trustees and the chancellor in a range of activities designed to advance the university.

Members’ main focus is to serve as ambassadors, informing members of their communities about what’s going on at Carolina and, in turn, keeping the university administration informed about what they’re hearing about Carolina in their communities. Their efforts may include public relations, government relations and fund raising.

Scott Maitland of Chapel Hill chairs the board; Ed Fristch of Raleigh is vice chair.

Each board member serves for four years. Each year, as members rotate off, the Board of Trustees elects new members. This year’s new members, listed alphabetically by North Carolina county and then by state, are:
