Greetings from the ISD Board of Trustees.
Our monthly Board meeting will be held this Thursday, 15 February at 6.00 pm (refreshments served from 5.30 pm) in the conference room in the Administration building.
It won't be long before we send out information about running for election to become an ISD Trustee at the April AGM. Being a Trustee is a valuable and rewarding way to contribute to the life of ISD. If you are interested in learning more, a great start is to attend a Board meeting as an observer. You can also contact us with any queries via our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
