President’s Council

The President’s Council is a select group of supporters who provide insight to leadership on strategic issues facing the organization—including programs, fundraising, communications, and long-term planning. The President’s Council is composed of diverse individuals who have broad perspectives, are web savvy, and care about education through the prism of their own children in school. The Council will help provide access to new networks, exposure to new ideas, and insight into the priorities of parents of K–12 students. The Council meets twice a year, or as necessary.
