The Clouds in Water Board of Directors  meetings are open to members of the community who would like to attend. There may be opportunities to voice concerns, ask questions, or offer ideas, though the chairperson will move us along to stay on schedule when necessary. There also may be instances in meetings where a sensitive topic is discussed and those who are not board members may be asked to step out of the room/log off for the duration of those conversations.
Our next meeting is June 22 at 6:30pm.
Topics on the agenda include: budget/financial report, shifting away from "Roberts rules," possible by-law changes, executive report, guiding teacher report.
If you are intersted in joining, please contact Koji at
