Volunteer Opportunity - ISLA Assistant Treasurer

Do you love numbers, spreadsheets, and fiscal responsibility?  Do you want to help ensure a bright financial future for ISLA??  We need you!

ISLA's Finance Committee is seeking a volunteer to serve as Assistant Treasurer this school year.  The Assistant Treasurer serves on the Finance Committee, which meets monthly, and supports the Treasurer in his financial oversight role. The Assistant Treasurer does NOT need to be a member of the ISLA school board. An ideal candidate would have a general familiarity with financial and budgeting concepts, but deep financial expertise is not required. Please contact Liz Crouse at lcrouse@isla.school or 612-716-7448 if you are interested in learning more about this role.

Wanted: Fundraising Committee Members

ISLA is working hard to expand our fundraising base, and we need your help! The Fundraising Committee of the ISLA Board is actively (urgently!) seeking new members with experience in nonprofit fundraising. Bonus points for experience fundraising from corporate donors.

If you are interested in learning more about the Committee, email Justin Elder at jelder@isla.school.

Wanted: Governance Committee Members

The Governance Committee of the ISLA Board is seeking new members! The Governance Committee works to ensure sound governance and oversight of the school and the school board. Governance oversees the nomination and election process for Directors and officers, assists with developing new school policies and updating existing policies, and other legal-related matters. Candidates should be passionate about good governance, and a background in a legal field is preferred but definitely not required.

If you are interested in learning more, email Liz Crouse at lcrouse@isla.school.
