Board Nomination & Election Information:


As we look towards the end of 2014, it is time for the election of Riverview's Board of Directors.  The Nominating Committee will be charged to slate a total of 6 new Board members, each to serve a two year term.  Seven of our current Board members will be returning to serve the second year of their two year terms.  


In order to be most effective, our Board needs a breadth and depth of experience and specific skills in education, facilities, finance, fundraising, legal, business, human resources, public relations and marketing and previous governance experience (non-profit or corporate).


Service on the Riverview Board of Directors is incredibly important and rewarding. You are encouraged to consider nominating skilled and passionate individuals (including yourself!) who could help Riverview's governing body build on its firm foundations and lead our school into the future.  


Please join us to get more information, ask questions and pick up a nomination packet on Monday, October 6 at a Board Elections Informational meeting from 5:30-6:30 in the Art Room.  Board members will explain why they serve and give insight into the governance work we have planned for this year.
