How to join the HSC Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is a group of volunteers committed to homeschooling and to the HSC mission statement. The Board acts as the caretaker of the organization by taking responsibility for its good health, charting its course, and planning for its future.

Ideally, Board candidates are HSC members in good standing who can commit to serving a three-year term, demonstrate an ability to work well within a group of people, exhibit tolerance for others different from themselves, communicate well in person and online, open themselves to the great learning opportunities that come from serving on a board, and share our commitment to HSC and homeschooling.

As representatives of HSC, Board Members are expected to support the HSC Mission Statement, Bylaws, and procedures as established by the Board. All HSC board members, as well as all other volunteers, are expected to regularly review and agree to the HSC Code of Ethics.

The HSC board is a working all-volunteer board. Each board member accepts responsibility not only for various areas of the organization, but also for supporting the volunteers related to that area.

The HSC Board generally meets for a long weekend each quarter, and Board Members are expected to attend all Board meetings, if possible, and at least a minimum of three per year.  In order to give members throughout the state a chance to attend our meetings and to share the burden of travel time and expense, we schedule meetings in various locations throughout the state. Board member travel expenses may be reimbursed if requested.

HSC board members communicate electronically with each other regularly and conduct much of their work via email; therefore, board members must own a computer and have a basic understanding of electronic communication. Board members are expected to check their email a minimum of three or four times a week, although most board members usually check their email daily.

Preferably, candidates will be HSC members who have volunteered for HSC for a minimum of one year in a position of responsibility. Alternatively, other relevant experience may be considered. As the HSC Board of Directors, our intention is to have a group of individuals that not only reflects the geographic, racial, ethnic, cultural and political diversity of our membership, but also champions that diversity.

If you are interested in expanding your volunteer efforts on behalf of HSC by becoming a Board member, please visit this page to complete the Letter of Interest and Questionnaire. If you have any questions, please contact the Board at

Thank you for your kind consideration of this important opportunity to serve on behalf of your fellow HSC members and help guide the future of our organization.
