The Nomination Process &What to Expect as a Board Member
Can I nominate myself or just others?
You can nominate both! We do recommend, however, that you let anyone that you may be nominating that you do in advance.
How many meetings are there?
We have one general public PTO meeting each month (August- May) that takes place at Broadmoor Elementary each month. The general meeting typically lasts about an hour, and includes our board members as well as school district staff and parents. It is a great time to discuss and interact with the community. We also have one board members only meeting that takes place in a private room at Timbercreek in Louisburg each month. This is when most of the magic happens! It's our time to tag up as a board and discuss happenings behind the scenes. These typically last a couple hours, depending on the time of year and what all we have going on.
What is the voting process?
Nominations begin for the new board April 1st and run until April 30th. On May 6th, we will host our May General Public Meeting at Broadmoor Elementary at 7:00pm when the voting will occur in person and virtually. Each individual running for the board will need to be in attendance at this meeting (in person or virtually) to say a few words before the vote takes place. The new board will be announced Friday, May 7th at 10:00am on our social media platforms and website!
When do we start?
The new board members will be announced on May 7th following the May General Meeting, and we will meet for the first time in June to begin planning for the 2021-2022 school year. Our board President will be in contact with board members to schedule the first meeting.
What are the responsibilities of board members?
Our 2020-2021 board was well staffed with existing leadership who are now eager and excited to moving into new leadership roles on the board! Below is a list of all open board positions, with a brief description. If you would like a copy of all our board positions with each position's responsibilities, feel free to download one below.
