The current structure of the NCHE board of directors is essentially the same as it was since 1992 when the last major revision of the bylaws was done. In those 21 years, a lot has happened that has greatly affected the workings of NCHE. The number of North Carolina homeschools has grown from 3,315 to 57,888, the Internet has grown from a novelty to a tool that has wide use in the homeschool community, and the services that NCHE provides to the homeschool community have grown in number and complexity.
In August, the NCHE board began to evaluate the current board structure in light of current needs and resources. Through this process, we were able to more clearly define our mission and develop a new organizational structure that will enable NCHE to be more effective in working toward our mission.
On November 2, 2013, the NCHE board approved the modified bylaws to be presented to the NCHE membership for a vote by ballot by November 15 and to be concluded within 30 days (to be submitted by Dec 13). If the membership approves the adoption of these bylaws, the current nominations and elections committee shall begin work to find candidates for the new positions to take office on May 24, 2014.
The NCHE board of directors recommends that you vote FOR the herein proposed bylaws.
