Desperately Seeking Board Members
The future of FOMS depends on you – currently every board member is in the last year of their term, or has agreed to stay on for additional year(s). We urgently need volunteers to fill these positions. We’re restructuring and reorganizing. On the agenda: Reduce terms from 3 years to 2 years, and stagger the terms of President and Vice-President to ensure a healthy balance of experienced leaders and new members. It is a great time to join the board and help shape the future of FOMS. If you are interested in any of the positions listed below please email FOMS@museumschool.org

Why should I serve on the FOMS board?

  • Your child feels a sense of pride to know that his/her parent holds an office.
  • You get to meet and work with wonderful people!
  • You stay updated and informed on what is going on at our school.
  • You can more effectively suggest change at our school.
  • Everyone has different strengths and talents. Everyone has something unique to offer our school and our children!
Board Member Positions – Open Now
Elected Board Positions (2 Year Term)

VICE PRESIDENT– Preside over meetings and perform the duties of the president in their absence.

As vice president, you will play a role in the day-to-day operations of FOMS, help formulate our long-range plan, work out issues as they arise, and participate in executive board discussions and decision making. The role of vice president is one of the least-defined jobs on the board. Our bylaws identify the duties as general support. These loose guidelines allow vice presidents the unique opportunity to tailor the job to their own skills and interests.

On the horizon – Open Soon

  • PRESIDENT(S)– Samantha Rosales and Rondi Vasquez / Term ends July 2017 (extended to July 2018)
  • TREASURER– Heather Dannecker / Term ends July 2018
  • SECRETARY- Jennifer Chernay / Term ends July 2018
