Board of Directors

The NBOA Board, comprising of business officers, heads of school and representatives from the business partner community, addresses the strategic and fiduciary needs of the association. The Board has three standing committees – Finance and Audit, Governance and Strategic Initiatives – in addition to specific task forces that are established on a case-by-case basis to address specific purposes.

The full Board meets three times a year (fall, winter and spring). Committees are convened throughout the year via telephone, video conferencing and in person. Individuals serve an initial term of three years and may be renewed to serve an additional term. Board members must rotate off after serving six consecutive years unless they are elected as Chair-Elect during their service.

The NBOA Board maintains a strong commitment to diversity of thought, geography and perspectives among independent school leaders.
