Board Recruitment Announcement

The Casa Esperanza Montessori Charter School, (CEMCS), Board of Directors is seeking applicants for the Board. The Board may appoint new members at any time if needed. Board terms typically begin in July.

In particular, the Board is currently looking for business community candidates with a background in development, fundraising, strategic planning, and technology, but we are always looking for people with, education, finance, business, law and non-profit board experience or other skills that will help our Board conduct the business of governing the school.

Being a part of the CEMCS Board is a great way to be engaged in and give back to the Casa community. We are often asked by interested candidates what sort of time commitment is expected of a Casa Board member. We have 11 regularly scheduled meetings a year (every month with a special meeting/Board Retreat in July), and each Board member is additionally required to serve on of the Board’s committees, which meet on a regular basis, both in person and via teleconference, throughout the year. Our workload ebbs and flows as needs arise in the school. Much of our communication occurs via the Board e-mail accounts provided by the school, and it is expected that Board members will check their e-mail daily, review issues that arise in a timely manner, and weigh in on them as appropriate (votes are not conducted outside of our meetings).

If helping Casa in this unique way sounds interesting to you, we hope you will submit an application. To apply for a Board position, please e-mail the following materials to: casaboard@cemcs.org:

  1. A copy of your resume; and
  2. A completed Board Member Application

Once your materials are in hand, we will contact you about the next step, which is typically a Board interview during an upcoming Board meeting. In addition, Board members are more than happy to talk to you more about this opportunity or to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

CEMCS Board of Directors
