The Board of Directors

The Foundation is governed by a Board consisting of between 4 and 20 voting members elected each year. The members serve a 3-year term with their terms in office having staggered expiration dates. For instance, in 2020, about one third of the members' terms would expire. Members can be re-elected. Typically members elected in 2020 would serve as part of the 'class of 2023'.

In addition, the President can appoint (with the Board's approval) up to three non-voting members, including the current Principal of the school.

The Board is called 'self-sustaining' - that means that the current Board members elect the new Board members. The election occurs at the annual meeting held in May. The Board usually meets monthly during the school year, and as often during the summer months as is necessary.

The Board elects four of its own to serve as officers on a one-year term. The officers include the President, the Vice-President, the Secretary and the Treasurer. Those four plus the immediate Past-President comprise the Board's Executive Committee.
