Here are general guidelines for a board member. This is either for a new position or to fill an existing vacancy.
FEEF has identified a need/position that requires a dedicated FEEF director.
The potential member should have been actively volunteering at school for 6 months or more.
Has demonstrated ability to lead volunteer based activities and work well with other volunteers. Must have volunteered on at least one FEEF event.
FEEF board recommends potential candidates attend at least 3 board meetings to better understand how the board operates.
Ideally, we would like potential board members to shadow existing board members for at least a year before assuming the role. This ensures a smooth transition for everyone. If you are interested in serving on the board, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with you to figure out the best match that effectively utilizes your passions and expertise.
