A seven-member Board of Directors governs AISL. The US Ambassador to Zambia appoints two of the Board members, and one of the appointed Board members will also serve as the Chairperson of the Board. The five remaining members are elected by the AISL Parent Association, which is composed of parents and legal guardians of students who are enrolled at AISL. Of these members, two must be affiliated with the US Government, and the other three are elected from the general parent community. Board members serve for two years and are eligible for re-election.
The overall role of the AISL Board of Directors is to oversee the strategic direction of the school. More specifically, the Board hires the Director to implement the strategic plan and to oversee the day-to-day operations of the school. The Board also provides fiduciary oversight by approving an annual budget and setting school fees. The Board also establishes broad school policy in accordance with the school vision, mission, and core values. Most of the work of the Board is accomplished by Board committees, which also include parent/guardians who do not serve on the Board.
The AISL Board of Directors holds Open Meetings five times during the course of the year. An Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in September while an Election General Meeting (EGM) is held in early June. Meeting dates and agenda are communicated through the weekly school newsletter (Leopard’s Tale).
