Report on 4th December Board Meeting

Issue 49: 12/1/2024 Strategic Objective:

The Board of FIS met for its third session of the year on Monday 4th of December. In the spirit of our United and Sound Governance, we are fully committed to demonstrating transparency and we will be continuing to share an update with you here monthly.

In this last meeting before the December holidays, the Board welcomed guests from the FIS university guidance team and were briefed in detail on the latest university application statistics, giving the Board insight into where our students are headed.

Following this presentation, there was an update on the results of the highly successful FIS 60th anniversary Gala, and progress report by the Risk & Audit committee on school policies. 

 The Board then moved to its main topic of discussion for the evening, the first iteration of the annual budget (there will be more until the March vote), presented by the Board’s finance committee and during which Board members had the opportunity to examine in detail and ask questions on the school’s finances to better inform their decisions.   

Finally, before closing the meeting, the Board was given an update on the progress of campus renovations by members of the FIS facilities team, and Board members were invited to join the Education for Sustainable Development Committee.

The next Board meeting is scheduled for January 29th, 2024.
