Seeking directors for the Griesbach Community League

The Griesbach Community League is seeking some new volunteer directors to fill two-year terms.

Joining the board is a great way to meet new people, learn or perfect skills and make your community an even better place to live. You don’t need previous board experience. Board members include students, parents and retirees. There really is space for everyone!

Time commitment will vary, depending on what kinds of initiatives and events are happening that month. Generally, the board has one meeting per month at Major General Griesbach School. Meetings are capped at two hours, often take less than that, and the board generally doesn’t meet formally over the summer.

Interested? Need more information before saying yes? Email Shelby: president@griesbachcommunity.com for more details.

We are actively recruiting for the following positions, which will be vacant and up for election at our annual general meeting in March. (Exact date of March meeting TBD.)

Our current treasurer has done such a great job that you’ll be walking into a well-established practice. Our board meets once per month, and the treasurer is not often required to attend other meetings, but is responsible for bookkeeping, regular financial updates and necessary filings.
