UEN Steering Committee Agendas & Minutes

The UEN Steering Committee meets in the capacity of the organization's board of directors and is composed of eight representatives from the original UEN Charter Member districts, made up of four superintendents and four school board members. Steering Committee members serve a four-year term on a rotating schedule. Additionally, a superintendent or a board member of each additional member district is also invited to meetings and each UEN member district has a vote. More details on UEN Steering Committee responsibilities can be found in the UEN Bylaws.
