Ashburton College has a six elected member Board and operates under the Mid-Term Election process, whereby members are elected for a three year term but on an eighteen month rotational basis. Members may stand for re-election.

Occasionally a standing member has to retire during their term. This brings about a Casual Vacancy.

Over the years, after advertising to the community, this has been filled by Selection.

Boards have the right to co-opt member/s for specific purposes. Co-opted members must not exceed the number of Elected Members.
