We had a wonderful Aspiring Board member session last night. With two sessions now complete, we are ready to open nominations for the two elected positions to the Board of Trustees.
Serving on the Board of Trustees is one of the most important roles in the school. Governance is a valued opportunity to bring your voice to the collaboration that oversees the ongoing growth and development of ASW as we all work toward realizing the mission of the school. Whether you have attended the trainings or not, if you think you have knowledge and insight that will help the school along its journey, we encourage you to consider placing your name in nomination for the open positions that are elected by the members of the School Association, also known as the parents of students attending the American School of Warsaw.
If you are interested in standing for election to the Board or Trustees, two positions are open. According to the bylaws of the board, one elected position is a U.S. citizen and the other position as a non-U.S. citizen. Details regarding citizenship requirements can be found in the Board Policy Manual, Section 1.04f. Two documents are available to guide you.
