Board of Trustees

StarCare is governed by a nine-member Board of Trustees who are appointed by our three founding entities – the City of Lubbock, Lubbock County and Lubbock Independent School District. The Board of Trustees’ role is integral in establishing StarCare’s vision, mission and values and ensuring public accountability.

 

Appointees

Each of the three entities appoint three members. They:

  • Serve a two-year term
  • Reflect the diversity of the service area and includes one or more persons who are clients or family members of clients of the types of services StarCare provides
  • Are collectively responsible for the effective administration of StarCare, done primarily by
    • setting governing policies consistent with applicable rules and standards
    • hiring a Chief Executive Officer to whom it delegates responsibility for leading and managing day to day operations
  • Appoint members of the Planning and Network Advisory Committee (PNAC) responsible for considering public input and ultimate cost-benefit and client care issues in order to assist StarCare in assuring the best use of public money in assembling and managing a network or providers
  • Are not employed by StarCare
