Call for Candidates for the 2017 VaHomeschoolers Board has Begun!
Online Application Deadline May 12, 2017
New two-year terms begin July 1, 2017
The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers is a member-directed organization whose Board of Directors is elected by the membership for two-year terms. On the current board, four seats are subject to election. VaHomeschoolers’ officers, committee chairs, lobbyists, and other positions are appointed by the Board of Directors from within the Board or, at the board’s discretion, from outside the Board. Board members meet as agreed every quarter, and perform various duties between meetings.
A candidate must be a resident of Virginia, a member of The Organization of Virginia Homeschoolers, and have been homeschooling for at least one year. He or she must be supportive of VaHomeschoolers’ inclusive stance and subscribe to VaHomeschoolers’ purposes as described in the bylaws. The candidate must submit biographical information that will be provided to members before election. The bylaws impose no qualification based on gender, religion, politics, educational philosophy, etc.
There aren’t burdensome rules and expectations for Board members, but it is anticipated that people who want to serve on the Board intend to work, not just mull policy. We who have served and worked on the Board know it is rewarding, and we invite our members to contribute their knowledge, interest and talents.
