Gov. Scott Reappoints Trustee Chair Alan Landman to New Term
August 12, 2013 - Gov. Rick Scott has reappointed Alan Landman to another four-year term on the Eastern Florida State College Board of Trustees.
Landman, a Melbourne attorney who serves as the board’s current chair, has been instrumental in expanding the college’s mission to offer its first Bachelor Degree programs starting this month.
He also played a central role in choosing Eastern Florida State College as the new name for Brevard Community College to reflect its transformation into an institution serving Brevard County and the entire Central Florida region.
“I want to thank Gov. Scott for the honor to continue helping Eastern Florida move into a future that will greatly benefit our students, our community and our region,” said Landman.
“It’s a privilege working with my colleagues on the board, all of whom share my commitment to make certain that Eastern Florida remains among the top colleges in Florida and the nation.”
Former Gov. Charlie Crist appointed Landman to the Board in 2009 and he was named chair in August 2011.
In another area, Scott also reappointed Landman to another term on the 18th Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission where he was named chair earlier this month.
The commission is charged with reviewing applicants for open county court and circuit court judicial posts and recommending candidates to the governor who makes the selection.
Landman received his law degree from the University of Florida in 1987 and worked
for one of Brevard County’s largest law firms until 1993 when he started his own highly
successful practice in criminal and family law.
