Call for nominations : CFFA Board and Committees 2019-2020 School Year
Chadbourne Elementary

Dear Chadbourne Community,

 

Some clarifications:-

This is call for nominations for various open positions. Positions are open to multiple candidates. Any number of candidates can sign up for a given post. This is the default option when I posted this notice. Just to make things more obvious I will increase the number of open positions to a large number to avoid this confusion. However, technically both approaches are same. Please sign up. We are especially looking for parents whose children will stay in Chadbourne for 3 or more years.

 

This year I am starting our search for CFFA Board members and committee chairs for next school year 2019-2020  now !! Quite a few parents from the current board and CFFA sponsored committees will either complete their 2 year terms or their kids will be graduate from Chadbourne. We are requesting parents to come forward and fill in these positions. This is your chance to make a difference in your school community! 

 

All the roles require good communications skills, a commitment to participating in the board conversations,  a commitment for the betterment of the school,  an inclusive attitude, and a professional decency to dealing with discussions.

  

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 8-9 CFFA board meetings during the school year, once every first Tuesday of the month at 7 pm in Room 1. 

 

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 at - http://www.cffaonline.org/board. I have added descriptions to most roles. Please ask if you need more clarifications/details. I will update them as needed.

 

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 step up instead of hoping for someone else to step up !!
