The Chatham Education Foundation is in the process of accepting applications for new Trustees and other committee volunteer positions. The CEF Board currently consists of 25 Trustees supported by additional community volunteers.

In reviewing our resources over the next few years, we anticipate needing new Trustees and committee volunteers primarily with experience and/or interest in fundraising, large donor development and sponsor outreach. We’re also looking to deepen our bench in Accounting/Treasury and Event Management. Applications will be accepted through February 20th.

The application process will include a review by CEF’s Nominating Committee followed by a Board vote of new members that will take place at CEF’s Annual Meeting to be held on March 15th. The CEF Trustee and Volunteer Interest form is attached.  If you have any questions or would like to learn more about being a CEF Trustee or volunteer, please email Stacey Ewald at chathamedfoundation@gmail.com.

Mike Czech – One of Chatham’s Hidden Gems….

On a warm sunny day, back in 2008, at Southern Boulevard Elementary School stood a very tall man (6.5” to be exact!), soft-spoken, warm and friendly as he was surrounded by a whole group of children running around him (at his knees).

His name was Mike Czech and he was teaching the kids how to play a game on the open court.   I introduced myself to help assist him as a fellow ...
