The NMC Board of Directors is a group of ten visionary individuals who voluntarily contribute their time and share a common commitment to the promise of technology to transform the work we do as learners and educators. The NMC Board focuses its time and considerable talents on considering the future of both formal and informal education and in setting the strategic course for the NMC in that future.
The Board has embraced the principles of policy governance, and shares the following core beliefs:
> Wendy Shapiro, Chair
> Don Henderson, Vice Chair
> Elizabeth Neely, Secretary/Treasurer
> Michael Berman, Board Member
> Larry Johnson, Chief Executive Officer
> Richard Holeton, Board Member
> Joe Lambert, Board Member
> Karen McCavitt, Board Member
> Ruben Puentedura, Board Member
> Peggy Snyder, Board Member
The NMC Board is authorized for a maximum of fifteen seats, but only ten are generally filled. Board members serve three years, and each spring, the Board considers nominations to replace the three members who retire each year. Up to four seats each are set aside for members and platinum partners; an additional four are designated as “at-large” and open to anyone the Board wishes to invite.
The Board has three special seats as well — one is reserved for the CEO; two additional seats are set aside for “visionaries,” and these seats are filled by extraordinary thinkers whose role is to help the Board to approach its work creatively and see its mission in new ways.
