Greetings amazing BSE community. The BSCO Board is looking to fill several leadership positions for the 2019-20 BSCO Board, as officers roll off their term.
While every position is up for re-election, the confirmed openings are as follows:
Director of Communications
Member at Large
While board members are encouraged to serve two years in a position, all positions are elected on an annual basis. As restricted in our bylaws, no member can serve more than two consecutive years in a position. Given the large number of board members transitioning out of their role this year, the board is considering having a current board member stay one additional year in a different role in order to equal out the number of transitions each year. The chart below outlines the responsibilities of each role.
If you are interested in the long-term vision and general attitude, atmosphere and culture of our parent organization, serving on BSCO’s board allows for an incredible amount of input. Specifically, serving on the board allows you to:
Approve/deny all teacher grants
Approve/deny budget requests under $1,000
Direct input into writing BSCO’s annual budget
Direct input into special projects that exceed the annual budget
Direct input into scheduling BSCO’s Dates to Remember
Contribution to the overall goals of the Board – such as this year’s goals of building the volunteer pipeline, smarter giving and increased STEM oriented programs
The time commitment varies between positions, but the minimum requirements are:
Monthly Board meetings (averaging about 2 hrs each)
Three community meetings
Setting-up/picking-up at one Parent Education night per year
Participation in at least one August playdate or Back to School Night to meet new and returning families
All positions can be done by a working parent. The bulk of all the positions (aside from the meetings) takes place online or via email. Additionally, several of the current members rolling off this Board will still be parents at BSE next year, allowing for an ease of transition where new members can have veteran support to answer questions.
If you are interested in serving on the Board, please complete the online BSCO Board Application Form no later than Friday, April 5, 2019. The 2019-20 ballot slate will be voted on during the final community meeting on Tuesday, May 21. If you have any questions, please email Ashish Gupta, BSCO President, or this year’s nominating committee lead, Andrea Steyskal or any of the current board members.
