The Committee


Pelham CNC members are strongly encouraged to attend as many Board of Education Meetings as possible to learn about the Board and its roles and responsibilities.

As per CNC ByLaws the number of nonpartisan volunteer members constituting the full Committee shall be no fewer than eight and up to 16, including, whenever possible, at least two members from each of the four elementary school attendance areas in the District.

The Regular Meetings of the CNC are between October and June. The first portion of the CNC’s calendar is to seek and nominate candidates for the Pelham school board. This work is carried out between October and April. There are between five and eight committee meetings, attendance at local nonprofit meetings for a CNC Public Service Announcement, email exchanges and school board candidate interview participation requirements. The second portion of the calendar is to ensure the committee is successful in its mission. This is achieved through the committee seeking new volunteers to join the CNC as current members’ terms end. The work is conducted between April and June.

Please refer to Ways to Participate Section to join the committee or reach out to the Pelham CNC Chair: to learn more.
