Community Partners - Non-Profit Board Opportunities
Ingenium Schools (http://www.ingeniumschools.org) is a Charter Management Organization (CMO) with ~ 800 students in kindergarten through seventh grade located on two campuses, one in Canoga Park and the other in Compton.
Ingenium is currently looking to fill the Treasurer position on its Board. There is no need for the occupant of the position to make financial donations; instead the Treasurer must look over the President's shoulders to ensure fiduciary responsibility.
The Board meets monthly for about 2-3 hours, alternating between the Canoga Park and Compton Campuses.
Interested candidates should contact Glenn Noreen at email@example.com.
