Welcome! Here you will find news and information about the governance of the American Embassy School Association of New Delhi.
All executive powers of the Association are vested in the Board of Governors. Seven voting members of the Board are elected by the Association. In addition, the Director of AES is an ex-officio member of the Board and two non-voting members are appointed by the American Ambassador. The Board itself may also elect three honorary members, usually representing the Parent School Association, the Faculty Association and a member of student government.
The Board sets the strategic vision for the school and creates school policies that reflect that vision. It hires the Director, approves budgets and fees, and oversees other fiduciary aspects of the school as defined by the charter and policies.
Our monthly meetings are open to all and are held on the third Thursday of each month in the Board Room at 5:00 p.m. (on the ground floor of the administrative building). Dates, times, locations and agendas are posted on the web.
In addition, in order to tackle the wide range of challenges related to school governance, we have several committees that also meet on a monthly basis. Association members may serve on Board Committees by appointment of the President, attend individual meetings to provide expertise on an issue under discussion or are welcome to attend these meetings to learn more about the work of the Board. Information about these committees may also be found on the web.
If you wish to draw the Board’s attention to any matter or ask to include an item on the monthly Board meeting agenda you may contact the President or the Director at least one week before the monthly meeting. Correspondence may also be submitted through Latha Srinivasan in the Director's office.
