Dear Aidan Community,
It is the time of year when we begin our search for nominees to fill vacancies on the 2018-19 Board of Trustees. The work of the Board - focused on driving the strategic direction of Aidan Montessori School - is challenging yet rewarding, and vital to the continued success of the school. Board service requires a substantial commitment of time. Trustees serve a three-year term, attend meetings of the full Board approximately every two months, and regularly participate on two standing committees of the Board.
Generally, we are looking for individuals with a strong commitment to Aidan and Montessori education, and who have the time and energy to serve the school in this capacity. We are particularly interested in identifying nominees with experience in the areas of finance, advancement, or governance.
In the past, the Board has been primarily comprised of Aidan parents. However, we consider nominees from both inside and outside the Aidan community. Please consider nominating yourself or someone you know whom you believe would make a valuable and constructive contribution to the Board. Nominations may be sent by email to Brenda Haendler (email@example.com) by Friday, May 4. Please provide a description as to how you or someone else would be a strong candidate, including the following information: number and ages of children at Aidan; prior volunteer experience with Aidan or related enterprises such as other non-profit boards. The Committee on Trustees will contact nominees and make its recommendations to the full Board. Selection will be determined by the number of openings and the current needs of the Board.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Brenda Haendler (firstname.lastname@example.org), Chair
The Committee on Trustees
