APESA Annual General Meeting – please join us on Tuesday 6th October

Please join us for the 2015 APESA Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 6th October in the Salle des Conférences of the CSI from 6.00pm to 8.30pm.

Candidacies are now closed for joining the APESA Board 2015-2016.  Thank you to all those who contacted us expressing their interest. 

The AGM is a good opportunity to find out about the school’s projects, to meet the teachers and board members, and to socialise with other parents.

To help us plan for this first gathering of the new school year, please RSVP and let us know if you can join us.

As you may be aware, the English speaking section of the CSI is funded by a parents’ association, known as the APESA, supervised by an elected Board of 12 parent-members. APESA is responsible for the English language education of 534 students for which it employs 15 staff.

It has an annual budget of over €1m. The AGM is your opportunity to approve the association’s accounts, understand how the school fees are used to fund the section and to participate in the election of new board members. Your presence at the AGM is important.

The APESA Board performs a crucial role for the section, being responsible for the financial management and development of the section. The Board takes overall responsibility for the running of the section. Its members are a diverse group of volunteers drawn from parents of children at the school, who can make a firm commitment of time and energy.

To operate effectively, it is vital that the Board is populated by experienced, dynamic and enthusiastic members. We are particularly looking for people with knowledge and experience in HR, IT, Communications, Finance, and Legal (French law).

Volunteering as a board member is a fantastic way to contribute to your child’s education, meet new people and actively work to improve the school environment for our children. It can also be a great way to learn more about the section and develop new transferable skills.

If you feel that you have the drive, savoir-faire and time for the role please contact us as soon as possible and consult the information on the website.
