MNIB Vice President positions up for election this year
Every two years members choose MNIB Board Vice Presidents for a two-year term serving each of the IB Programmes represented in Minnesota.
For the first time, the Board has changed the bylaws to include the fourth IB Programme - the CP (Career-related Programme) as an additional VP position. We are seeking candidates for these positions from our membership. In some cases, current VP's are standing for re-election while others are stepping down.
Please contact Jon Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in running for one of these positions. We will hold the election in late May following the Association meeting on May 25th. Applications will close April 30th. The new terms begin on July 1st, 2021.

For DP Vice President
Ashley Brown - Champlin Park High School
This is my 7th year being an IB Diploma Coordinator at Champlin Park HS and throughout those 7 years I've learned a lot from my fellow coordinators in the IB MN association. I now feel confident being able to step into the role of the VP for DP position and give back to the community that has given so much to me. I would like to be able to lead my fellow coordinators and the association with excitement around topics that we as schools need to continue to push ourselves in and grow to better serve our students and communities. I'll continue to listen to the needs of others as past VPs have and pursue answers to help us all feel confident in the jobs we are doing. Thank you for the consideration of this position!
For CP Vice President
Chris Baker-Raivo - Champlin Park High School
I have been working in an IB coordinator role for five years and have been focused on the IB Career-related Program for the last four. Our site was authorized to run the CP in 2019 and will be graduating our first group of seniors this spring. I believe the strength of MN IB is the spirit of collaboration we share. To this end, I will strive to provide the kind of support that was so readily given to me as we were just starting our program and to work with the IB to receive answers to our collective questions. Additionally, I am excited to work with you in order to develop and refine our respective programs and support our students together. Thank you for your consideration!
