In evaluating prospective candidates, the Nominating Committee is committed to recruiting new members to the Board who:

  1. Are successful professionally and because of their position and abilities are able to reach out to others to garner support for the fund raising and programmatic efforts of the Foundation.
  2. Represent the diversity (class year; gender; ethnicity; race; and occupation or profession) of our alumni.

  4. Will participate actively in Foundation Committees, task forces and activities.

We are an active, working board.  The term of office commences July 1, 2018. 

To nominate a Brooklyn Tech alumnus to a seat on the Board, please forward that person’s name and class, with their contact information and a brief statement as to why you think she or he is qualified for the position.  A CV or resume may subsequently be solicited by the Committee from the            . 

Self-nominations will be accepted.  Please include your CV or resume.

The Nominating Committee will review all nominations and make its recommendations to the Board at the May 22nd  Board meeting. The Board will conduct the election of new Board members at its Annual Meeting on June 21, 2018.

Although the formal deadline is April 30, we encourage nominations to be made at the earliest date possible.

As part of its inclusionary efforts, the Board also intends to develop new roles and opportunities for alumni who are not Board members to participate on a committee or task force. It is not likely that every person nominated to a Board seat will be elected, but it is conceivable that some nominees who are not elected will be invited to participate at one of these new levels.  Please indicate in your application any particular areas of interest.  The Board welcomes the involvement of alumni with skill sets that can benefit a nonprofit organization.  While the board always seeks to be populated with Directors possessing a wide variety of skill sets and professional experiences, at this time the areas of special interest to it are: fundraising, finance and governmental relations.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEMBERS should have a high level of professional or personal accomplishment, and be comfortable in applying their professional expertise and relevant community, governmental, industry or corporate relationships and networks, to benefit the BTAF. To the best of their ability, they are expected to participate meaningfully in the Foundation’s fundraising activities. In addition a Board member is expected to:

  • Engage and participate in activities of the Alumni Foundation or otherwise in support of Brooklyn Tech.
  • Participate actively in at least one board committee or task force.
  • Contribute financially to the Foundation annually, at a level commensurate with his or her personal (or business) financial ability
  • Abide by the ethical, conflict of interest and confidentiality policies of the Board.

The mission of the Foundation is to support Brooklyn Technical High School as the premier specialized high school for science, technology, engineering and mathematics by harnessing the intellectual and financial power of Tech alumni.
