Welcome to the Board of Directors- class of 2021!
We are delighted you have accepted our invitation. Your time, talents and treasure is an important service to the community as we work together to accomplish the important work of supporting our public schools.
You are joining a legacy of innovative leaders that have served the community since 1995. Founded by the EastLake Company, concerned parents and educators, these leaders realized that public schools would need public support to remain future-forward to best prepare kids for the in the 21stCentury economy.
The EEF has given almost $3,000,000 to EastLake public schools. In 2018, we expanded what we offer the community and began providing programs that are open the entire community. This year we launched the official alumni effort for EastLake Highschool called Eastlake Alumni & Friends. Furthermore, we are starting a new Strategic Plan this year that will carry us to 2024. The work is exciting and you are now a part of the team that will build an even greater and sustaining bridge for the community.
We meet monthly on the third Tuesday of the month, taking a break in December and June —
a total of 10 meetings a year. Currently our meetings are via ZOOM from 8:00 am – 9:00 am. We hope to return to our in-person meetings held at the Woods Clubhouse as soon as it is deemed safe.
Please take time to review The EEF Bylaws Orginal (1) and the Board Member Code Of Ethics 031113 before the next Board Meeting. There is no need to print and sign these documents. You will have the opportunity to “check the box” indicating that you have read these when you fill out the New Director Form below.
We have a very limited amount of time each month at our Board meetings so please don’t hesitate to reach out with your questions, ideas and feedback between meetings– or if you just want to grab a beverage and chat.
We look forward to accomplishing great things together!
Janet Francis, Executive Director Elaine Elefante- Leano, President
