Call for Nominations : CFFA Board Positions and Committee Chairs for 2018-2019 School Year
Chadbourne Elementary

Dear Chadbourne Parents,


This year I am starting our search for CFFA Board members and committee chairs for school year 2018-19 one month in advance compare to last year !! Number of parents in current board and CFFA sponsored activities committee are either completing their 2 year term and/or their kids graduating from Chadbourne.


Here's your chance to make a difference in your school community! 


We need parents to step up and volunteer for the CFFA Board positions for next school year (2018-19). 


While there are no pre-requisites for any position, for the Treasurer and Asst Treasurer roles, a background in accounting, banking or finance will be preferable, though it is not required.  All the roles require good communications skills, a commitment to participating in the board conversations and a basic professional approach to dealing with discussions.


This year board has simplified numerous processes to make functioning smoother, here are few examples:

  • Adoption to online donation  and automated receipt issuance for tax purpose to pioneer pledge donors.
  • One bank account to manage CFFA and Teachers fund, saves several trips to bank for  board members
  • Our treasurer has setup online quick book to manage accounts neatly and generate monthly reports before board meeting, for secretary to issue reimbursement
  • Our secretary has laid out reimbursement request submission / payout policy to reduce frequent interactions

 This has helped board function smoothly so far this year.


Some more facts -


1. All the current board members are full-time working parents. You do not need to be in school during school hours to do these jobs except occasionally for some roles. Most of the work can be done at home.


2. You have to attend a total of 7-8 CFFA board meetings during the school year, once a month at 7 pm 


3. This is a one year commitment as we hold elections every year for all positions. 


4. Job descriptions for all board positions are available here -


If we do not have all the positions filled on the Executive Board the following will happen:


1. In the absence of a functioning board that manages the approval and disbursement of funds - There will be no CFFA sponsored activities possible such as - Art and Music Program, Halloween Carnival, Math Olympiad, Geography Bee, Variety Show, Bollywood Night etc...


2. Classroom funds will not be disbursed which means teachers will not be able to buy supplies, do field trips or purchase subscriptions for online learning programs and magazines such as Discovery Education and Scholastic News.


Please consider volunteering instead of hoping that someone else will do it.
