Love Lowcountry Montessori? Seeking a way to make a real contribution to our school? Joining the LMS Board of Directors may be the perfect opportunity for you! Applications/Nominations will be open for election to seats on the LMS Board of Directors. 

Application/Nomination forms may be returned to the Governance Committee at bdc.elections@lowcountrymontessori.com., or hand-delivered to the LMS Office, attention Governance Committee.


You may apply for a position yourself, or nominate someone you think would be a great candidate (application/ nomination forms will require the signature of the applicant or nominee).   


The LMS Board must be composed of an odd number of members, with a minimum of nine and a maximum of fifteen.  All board member terms are for a period of two years. Board seats are numbered, and terms are staggered to maintain consistency and continuity through the years. Board members may be parents OR interested members of our community -- having a child at LMS is NOT a requirement!


We hope the attached materials will answer most of your questions. If not, however, please feel free to contact the Governance Committee at bdc.elections@lowcountrymontessori.com. We look forward to receiving your application!
