Riverview Charter School is now accepting nominations for its Board of Directors.
RCS is seeking six Board members, each to serve a two-year term from January 2022 through December 2023.
Recent bylaw changes result in three of the Board members being seated through the election process and the remaining three appointed by the currently seated board. The plurality of the vote will identify the first three candidates to be seated on the board.
Following the election, the Riverview Board of Directors will then select three additional candidates from the nomination pool for appointment to the board.
Five current Board members are returning to serve the second year of their two-year terms.
According to a news release from Board Chair Reece Bertholf, the Riverview 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,” Bertholf wrote. “I encourage you 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.”
The deadline for submittal of nominations is 6 p.m., Friday, Nov 19. The Board will review the candidates’ eligibility from Nov. 22 to 26, and ballots will be distributed Nov. 28 via email.
The deadline for receiving votes is 6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 4, and election results will be announced Thursday, Dec. 16 at the regularly scheduled board meeting.
