Organization

The BISB-PA is a registered, non-profit organization, managed by an elected Executive Board, consisting of 10 Committee Chairs. The BISB-PA also supports several volunteer Subcommittees. By-laws are available upon request from the BISB-PA president.

Committee Chairs

The President oversees all business of the BISB-PA and is the main contact between the organization and the school.

The Vice President assists the President in all duties and also oversees the Elections process.

The Treasurer/Secretary is responsible for accurately reporting all finances of the BISB-PA and is also responsible for keeping all records of the BISB-PA.

The Communications Committee serves to centralize communication between the School, BISB-PA committees, and families to keep everyone informed of upcoming events. It is responsible for including regular updates in the weekly newsletter and maintaining the BISB-PA online presence via the website and social media channels.

The School Committees, which include Class Representatives for each year group, work to facilitate the flow of information between the BISB-PA, teachers, and parents.
