Alzar School Board of Directors Meeting

Alzar School | 23.10.08

On Saturday, October 18th, the Alzar School had its first Board of Directors Meeting. Josh Unger was unanimously voted to be President. Katie Basham will serve as vice president, Dr. Kim Tanabe as secretary, and Tony Pori as treasurer. Kristin and Sean Bierle were both present and will serve on the board ex officio.

Kim hosted the meeting at her cabin along the South Fork of the Payette River in Garden Valley, Idaho. It was so exciting to have this energetic group people come together to share the vision of the Alzar School. We discussed the Alzar School’s strategic plan, the 501c(3) status, and upcoming programs. It wasn’t all business, there was fetch with the dogs, dinner, desert, and talk of a quick run down the South Fork.

We are currently pulling our resources to find talented people to form our advisory committee. Advisory Committee members will contribute ideas, finances, and/or advice to the Alzar School. We are in particular need of accounting and lawyer contacts. If you know of anyone who could fill these rolls let us know!

Sean and Kristin’s golden retriever puppy and Alzar School Mascot, Pebbles, is growing like crazy and is looking forward to her first Alzar Expedition to Mexico this December. Sean is working hard at Boise High School to perfect his teaching techniques and Kristin is studying hard in the MBA program at Boise State University.

We still have a few spaces left for the “Adventure to Mexico 2009” Expedition. If you, or someone you know would like to learn how to kayak, or perfect their paddling skills from December 27th- January 11th have them give us a call.
