Invocation at Cerritos College Board Meetings

Dear religious leader,


The Cerritos College Board of Trustees makes it a policy to invite individuals to voluntarily offer a prayer before the beginning of its meetings, for the benefit and blessing of the Board of Trustees. As the leader of one of the religious congregations with an established presence in the local community, you are eligible to offer this important service at an upcoming meeting of the Board of Trustees. 

If you are willing to assist the Board of Trustees in 2016, please complete an online application. Respondents shall be scheduled during regular meetings by rotating through each trustee area. If there are no requests from a trustee area, the schedule will be on a first-come, first-served, or other random basis to deliver the prayers. A schedule of speakers for the 2016 board meetings will be posted on this page.

This opportunity is voluntary, and you are free to offer the invocation according to the dictates of your own conscience. To maintain a spirit of respect, the Board of Trustees requests that the prayer opportunity not be exploited as an effort to convert others to the particular faith of the invocational speaker, nor to disparage any faith or belief different from that of the invocational speaker.

Please read Board Policy 2300 and Administrative Procedure AP 2300 for important information regarding invocation at Cerritos College.
