Do you have a desire to provide equitable, engaging, and exceptional opportunities for Carmel's 16,000+ students?  CEF board and committee members are strategic planners, creative thinkers, collaborators, and passionate advocates representing a range of experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives.

Members represent area business or non-profit partners, are CCS parents, educators or alumni.  Directors serve a three year term which includes: monthly meetings; engaged service on at least two committees (executive, finance, fundraising, governance, grants, or scholarship); and an annual financial contribution of their choosing.  Committee members and community advocates serve one-year terms with meetings and/or events typically focused during a six-month period.
