ICS Board of Governors

Board Elections & Appointments

The current Board consists of nine members. Six members are appointed by the Board, two members are elected by the ICS Association, and one is appointed by the US Ambassador. Some of our members are concluding their terms of service this year, and we are inviting and encouraging interested people from, or known to, the school community to join the Board.

We are looking for candidates with a range of experience and capabilities. To enhance the skills of our current group, we are especially interested in people with experience or expertise in:

  • Project management, general contracting, architectural design, civil engineering
  • Governance, strategic planning, management
  • International schools (as a parent, alum or former employee), and their unique opportunities and complexities

You can join the ICS Board of Governors by either being elected by the Association, or by being appointed by the Board through a nomination and thorough selection process.


  • To run for the elected positions, individuals must either be a current ICS parent/guardian and member of the ICS Association, excluding faculty or staff or partners of faculty or staff.
  • To apply for a Board appointed position an individual must be an ICS Association member and self-nominate, or be nominated by a current member of the ICS Association.
