At NCCE we are proud of our past and deeply indebted to the trailblazers who over four decades ago recognized the need for computer science education in schools.  Much of who NCCE has become today is due greatly in part to the amazing thought leaders and champions guiding our organization.  Much like you, they are passionate advocates for the use of technology in all aspects of education.   We are thankful for the contributions that our board members have made, and will continue to make to further 21st century learning through the use of innovative, cutting-edge technologies to improve the quality of education for all students.

The main charge of the Board of Directors, as trustees of the organization, is to act as the linkage to the membership.  The Board will direct, control, and inspire the organization through written organizational policies and will also provide assurance of organizational performance of both the Executive Director and the Board of Directors.

The Board consists of at least nine and up to eleven Directors, elected according to the will of the membership. Candidates for NCCE Board of Director positions must be members in good standing of the organization.  Terms of office are three years in length, and Directors may serve more than one term. Geographic balance will be maintained on the Board as much as possible.

The following 9 positions will be elected to the Board of Directors by vote of the entire membership:

a. One elementary educator
b. One middle school or junior high educator
c. One senior high educator
d. One person working in a K-12 district level technology related position
e. One person from an institution of higher education
f. One person from an intermediate, regional or county education service district
g. Three persons designated as at-large representatives; terms will be staggered as much as possible

Additionally, up to two non-elected Directors may be appointed by the members of the Board to provide representation, as needed, for unrepresented or underrepresented constituencies or to meet the organizational needs of the Board.
