We invite all AICL Summer Camp Fans to consider running for the board! Nominations will be open from December 15 to 31. Then in January, members will elect two board members to a three-year term.

Here are nuts and bolts--

  • Board members serve on or chair committees such as alumni, development, and finance. They could assist with outreach or use their professional expertise to help AICL plan for the future.

  • Board members volunteer such services 8 hours a month OR donate or individually raise one week of residential tuition.

  • The board meets approximately every six weeks via video conference and once a year for an in-person winter meeting.

Serving on the board is a great way to help the Appalachian Institute for Creative Learning achieve its mission--

We offer exciting and challenging programs for talented and gifted students. Through outreach and scholarships, we foster a racially and economically diverse community. At AICL, we see everyone as both a learner and a teacher. We encourage social and intellectual interactions that will enable our students to fulfill their personal, professional, and academic potential. Because we build curricula based on the idea that learning is fun and should be ongoing, we prepare our students to engage our complex world with insight, empathy, and confidence.

Think you might want to run? Send a short bio by December 31st that describes any relevant professional and/or board experience as well as a few lines on why you are interested in serving on the board. Know someone who would be great? Spread the word! Let us know! We're happy to answer questions.
