ISH Board of Directors

The ISH Board of Directors is a dedicated group of volunteers who serve the governance needs of the school. The Board of Directors is self-perpetuating and is the highest authority of the school. Members serve renewable one-year terms.

The membership of the Board of Directors is representative of both the diplomatic and non-diplomatic members of the international community living in Havana.

The full Board meets four times a year as do the two standing committees: Operations and Finance. The Evaluations and Appointments (E&A) Committee meets three times per year.
