The OMS Montessori Board Nominating Committee accepts applications from OMS Montessori and The Element High School community members interested in assisting its Board of Directors to achieve its mandate. Positions begin July 1st of each year, and consist of a one to three-year term. As with the different Montessori community levels, the Board strives to balance membership between 3 members in their first year, 3 in their second year and 3 in their last year.
Every year the Nominating Committee reviews the composition of the current Board, the skills of outgoing Board Members, and identifies areas of need to be met by incoming Board Members. This could be in relation to a nominee’s profession, previous volunteering experience, skill sets and interests. Previous volunteer engagement with the school is considered an asset.
