The Governing Council of NMIS is seeking volunteer members to join its team. The Governing Council (GC) serves as the governing board of the school, responsible for oversight of the school and its fiscal responsibility. To this end, the GC hires a Head of School, who reports directly to the GC on the school’s operation.
The ideal GC member is someone who wants to improve the overall quality of New Mexico by overseeing a school that seeks to be an agent of positive change to our state. To this end, the GC seeks professionals with diverse backgrounds to foster effective and responsible governance of the school. Specifically, the GC is looking for members that are realtors, business professionals, teachers, professors, managers, school administrators, architects, lawyers, community leaders, accountants, and especially community-minded volunteers.
The obligation of each GC member is to attend regular meetings (approximately 6-8 meetings per year) to discuss issues of the school and make decisions on its behalf. The GC hires and supervises a Head of School, who then oversees all aspects of the school. GC members are also obliged per state rule to attend various trainings throughout the fiscal year. This obligation amounts to 8-10 hours of training.
Serving on the NMIS GC is a fantastic and rewarding way for qualified professionals to help shape a bright future for the state of New Mexico by ensuring the continued operation of one of its best schools.
