In order for the board of directors to fulfill its responsibilities in the most efficient and effective manner possible, it has established several committees to ensure appropriate focus on several areas critical to the school. Committees meet and conduct their work apart from the board meetings. Committee decisions and actions are reported to the BOD during its quarterly meetings for information and approval.
Each committee will have at least two board members—with one serving as committee chair and who may invite other interested individuals to participate as committee members. If you are interested in joining one of our committees, please contact the committee chair or the board at BOD@regisstmary.org.
