This past weekend 7 members of the Alumni Advisory Board (AAB) came down to The Island School for their annual on-island board meeting. These alumni are part of a volunteer board that helps The Island School alumni department strengthen the alumni network and also serve as the link between IS, CEI and DCMS and the greater Island School alumni community. During their long weekend on Eleuthera, the AAB participated in morning exercise, spoke with the directors of IS, CEI and DCMS, and discussed the future of the board as The Island School approaches its 15th birthday. However, the most valuable experience for the board was participating in facilitating a community meeting with the current Fall 2013 students. Alumni and current students alike shared an important “snapshot” from their semester and then broke out in to small groups to discuss some bigger picture questions about their Island School experiences.

The final night of the AAB meeting was spent aboard the Maxey’s catamaran, Kokomo. The board’s next meeting will be in the states in April. To find out more about what the AAB does or how you can get involved in The Island School’s alumni community, email
