Obtain a study guide. The purpose of a study guide is to make you aware of the type of questions that board members may ask and to put the material in a "user friendly" format for study. The questions in any study guide should not be considered to be the only questions a board will ask. Some units provide a basic study guide for their soldiers. Study guides can also be purchased at the PX. One excellent study resource is the U.S Army Board Study Guide (www.armystudyguide.com). This is a free and very comprehensive online study guide. Seek counsel; other soldiers in your unit who have previously been to "the board" can provide you with a wealth of valuable information. They will be able to tell you about the process, the types of questions asked and their views on what the board members are looking for. Additionally, they can participate in a mock board to help you prepare yourself (see mock boards). Knowing what to expect can help to ease your nerves and prevent you from being surprised by unexpected questions and situations. Know your unit's history, meaning of the unit crest and the unit's current mission. If being considered for promotion, know the MOS and skill level that you are being recommended for. Be familiar with the Soldier's Manual and be proficient in the duties required of that skill level. Be prepared to express yourself on current events (world and national and local level). Pay close attention to news programs and read the daily newspaper at least a week prior to, and up to the date of the board.

You should schedule a records review at least 21 days prior to your board appearance. Your Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) is available to you online if you have an Army Knowledge Online (AKO) account. The items you will need to check are: correspondence course completion documentation, military and civilian course/school certification, awards,…...

Board

...Facilitate/Preside Over Meetings • Chairmen are required to "chair," or facilitate and preside over, company board meetings. More specifically, a chairman is expected to determine the agenda of the meeting at hand, encourage discussion and participation from all directors and board members and relay pertinent information regarding current events within or pertaining to the company. A chairman is also expected to point issue discussions and debates toward a consensus stance, upon which the majority of the board agree, and which can therefore be acted upon for the expected benefit of the company or organization. Organizing The Board • For productive meetings to take place, the board in question needs to consist of an effective balance of members in regards to the board members' ages, work experience and personalities. This organizational or compositional process is ongoing; as a person carries on in their role of chairman, they will find that board members will either leave of their own volition or will need to be replaced. Additionally, a chairman needs to involve directors already on the board to mentor new directors who are new to their position. • Spokesperson/Representative • Depending on the company or organization, the scope and frequency of public relations duties for a chairman may range from practically nonexistent to major responsibility. The spokesperson responsibilities of a chairman generally involve relaying the mission statement of the company or......

...Discussion Board Question: Think of a time when you were really dissatisfied with a job in a company or your role in a volunteer organization, student group (incl. fraternity/sorority) or as a student in a class. Describe the situation. What did you think about the situation? How did you feel about it emotionally? How did your job satisfaction influence your behavior? I once worked at an Irish restaurant while I was in high school that was completely dreadful. We worked extra long shifts with no lunch breaks would sometimes be forced to work doubles on weekends with no breaks at all and no overtime pay. The restaurant was new in town so busy was slow, I would walk away from an 8 hour shift with only 15$. The manager and owners were rude and couldn’t even remember our names and were extremely insensitive about requesting time off no matter what the circumstances were. It was the only job I could find at the time so I was stuck working it for 2 months until the summer ended, it was horrible. The job itself was exhausting from being on your feet all day and walking around the restaurant. I was constantly tired which make me grumpy and very irritable even when I wasn’t working. Because of the rudeness of the employers it caused all of us to be less friendly towards each other, which made a bad work environment. The whole situation made me become a poor employee unfortunately. I didn’t try my best and would frequently show up late and slack on my work. The lack of respect from...

...Technology causes schools technical hitches to keep up with the quick movement of change. One of the technical hitches that education leaders have to face is cell phone usage in classrooms. We want to believe that all students would act responsibly with cell phone usage in classrooms. In many cases, many students abuse policies. Cell phones in class should not be allowed because students can use them from cheating, disruptions, and cyber bullying. High school students may feel more tempted to cheat because they probably failed to study, have emotional/hormonal issues, or have involved themselves with the wrong crowds. High school is a very crucial time for humans because it is a transition in life from child hood to adult hood. These evolving students have parents at home that encourage strong education for future careers, demand respect, and analyze final grades. Students will cheat to have a finalized grade that will benefit them for future opportunities and to keep the harmony at home. Students can cheat very easily with smart phones by using the internet, taking photos, and texting. On a youtube video clip, How to cheat with a smartphone, films a girl taking a test with her smart phone covered in-between her test papers. She had the answers texted to her after sending an image to her accomplice of the test. The teacher was in the same room with the student writing information on the chalk board for her next class. For this reason, schools should disallow......

Ational Survey of the Perceptions of Selected School Board Members Regarding the Quality and Condition, Maintenance, and Improvement and Renovation of Existing Public School Facilities

...1 Chapter 1 NATIONAL SURVEY OF THE PERCEPTIONS OF SELECTED SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS REGARDING THE QUALITY AND CONDITION, MAINTENANCE, AND IMPROVEMENT AND RENOVATION OF EXISTING PUBLIC SCHOOL FACILITIES Introduction The quality and condition of existing public school facilities have been a topic of growing concern among educators across the country. Each year, the cost of maintenance, and improvement and renovation needed to maintain public schools continues to increase (Earthman, 1994). National studies conducted during the last fifteen years clearly indicate rising costs. In 1983, a random survey of school administrators in thirty-three states and the District of Columbia was undertaken by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA). This study was also supported by the Council of Great City Schools and the National School Boards Association (NSBA). A previous study was completed twenty-three years earlier in 1960 by AASA. The 1983 report revealed that at least $25 billion would be needed to address facility maintenance, and improvement and renovation needs, not including funds needed for new construction (AASA, 1983). The study reported “ . . . schools throughout the nation, particularly those in the older inner cities, have deferred billions of dollars of repairs” (p. 13). Six years later (1989), the Educational Writers Association (EWA) published its study, Wolves at the Schoolhouse Door. This study analyzed information received from twenty-eight state......

...11/06/2012 Destination Management Plan: IACC internal board structure and terms of reference Introduction Put simply by Visit Wales, destination management is “…coordinating all the activities and services which impact on the visitor and their enjoyment of a destination”. Effective, quality destination management requires the involvement of all stakeholders through clear communication and transparent decision-making. In particular, this requires pro-active engagement between the three key partners: the local authority as destination managers, the private sector as the service providers and the North Wales Regional Tourism Partnership (TPNW), acting on behalf of Visit Wales. It also requires the involvement of a range of other parties with an interest in tourism, subject to local circumstances. There also needs to be a clear structure, terms of reference and lines of communication within the private and public sector partners/groups. There is no formally prescribed model for partnership working in destinations within or between the sectors. Different arrangements are being made in different areas and the local situation might require a tailored solution(s). It will be important to be flexible and adapt any model as experience dictates. The local authority’s role and structure in the context of the DMP The local authority comprises a large number of departments, most of which involve or have a bearing on the tourism sector. These are listed below with their tourism......

...Andrade Mr. Jones p.2 November 23, 2013 Pro Prayer In School Over the years, many Americans have discussed the issue about prayer in school. It has been heavily debated since the 1960s, when the Supreme Court decided that prayer in school was unconstitutional and was removed from all public schools. Many people believe that the elimination of prayer in school is beneficial to the students. They say that because religion is private and schools are public it is better that the two should not mix. “To introduce religion in our public schools, builds walls between children who may not have been aware of religious differences before.” (state/church) This, however, its contradicted by many factors that have been seen over the years. Prayers have the power of creating a spiritual atmosphere that helps students drive into values such as humility and discipline. Which is why many people believe that prayers should be allowed in school to develop the maturity of the students. “Banning prayers in school could mean depriving the school children of their freedom of religion.” (prons and cons of prayer in school) According to the First Amendment of the Constitution, all American people have freedom of Andrade 2 religion, press, and expression. Therefore, every children who attends school should have the right to pray at school. Those who are in favor of prayers in school, believe that prayer is an essential part of the school routine. For them, it seems quite irreligious......

...Introduction The nomination and election of a board of directors is a critical event for an organization. Selecting the right individuals to comprise the board that will provide adequate oversight and ensure alignment of management to that of shareholders and stakeholders best interests is vital to the success of the company. This paper explores how boards are formed, how individuals become part of boards, the type of individuals that should comprise a board, CEO duality and the advantages and disadvantages of having non-executive board members. How Boards are formed When forming a board of directors the c-suite should see the board and its members as a strategic partner rather than as a necessary requirement a corporation must have. The initial question that must be answered when considering forming a board of directors is what type of board does your organization need and select appropriate board leadership that meets the needs of your organization. In forming a board of directors many things must be taken into consideration such as the composition of the board, the number of board members, committee structure, roles and responsibilities, evaluation metrics for board performance and meeting frequency. Each of these elements will lead to the success of the board creating a strong platform for corporate governance. How do individuals become part of the Board of directors (Methods / Process)? In Canada upon incorporation of a company the......

PRIOR TO MOVING TO VERO BEACH, I WAS A GIRL SCOUT LEADER AND EMPLOYED BY MARTIN COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT AND SUCCESSFULLY PASSED THEIR LEVEL II BACKGROUND POLICIES. I VOLUNTEERED LAST YEAR AT BEACHLAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AS A SCHOOL MONITOR.

Board Meeting

...Report Meeting of Board Education Sr. Agnes Tram Nguyen EDU645MSEC MS School Policy and Regulations Professor: Dr. James Pedersen Felician College Date March 26th, 2015 This is a report on the regular meeting of the Board of Education which was held on December 11, 2014 at 7 p.m. in the Monsignor João Antão School No. 31, 1014 South Elmora Avenue, Elizabeth, New Jersey. There were many issues discussed during the three-hour session, including a special period of congratulations for some leaders of the Board of Education, who will be retiring next month. However, in this paper, I will only be reporting on matters regarding policies in education in general and of the schools in particular. The meeting discussed the PARCC exam. It addresses the concerns of many educators and parents who do not agree with the speed of the test. They hope primarily that the state Board of Education will delay the implementation of PARCC. Mr. Rodriguez stated that one of the biggest issues is that the test is only in English and will not be available in Spanish. This, he noted, will affect urban school districts where the majority of residents speak Spanish. He said that educators want to present the exam to parents and help the community to understand the new exam in order to get the necessary supports. The project requires a lot of money that has to go into technology, and students need to be able to use computers every day. Another issue was about a comment......

Bus Drivers Against School Board

...arbitrator in this matter I would have to agree with the public school district. I would award the school district the right to drive students (as long as they fit safely in the van) the right to be driven by the superintendent to any school sporting events or after school activities. It is stated that the schools definition of a field trip does not include sporting or after school trip is to be considered a field trip. If it was clearly written then it doesn’t matter what the school bus drivers decide to accept or not accept as a definition. 2. Identify the key, relevant sections(s), phrases, or words of the collective bargaining, agreement (CBA), and explain why they were critical in making your decision. I didn’t really find any relevant sections because they all seem to apply to how the drivers will be picked for trips. I am wondering where the paragraph about the definition of what constitutes as field trip is? In reading through this the only relevant thing I deemed appropriate to make the decision was how the school district defined field trip. If the bus company and its drivers knew this then there really shouldn’t be any type of grievance. If that wasn’t clearly defined then I do believe section six under Article XXXI would come into play. “Only classified bus drivers that are contract drivers with the board shall be assigned to any route or extra trip”. That paragraph would blow the school districts argument out of the water. I doubt the......

...significant improvements to our federally funded school meal program. This act will require changes to the National School Lunch Program and the National School Breakfast Program, whereby school meals will be aligned with dietary recommendations for children as outlined in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. If the new standards are implemented, school meals will provide increased offerings of nutritious items (eg, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and 1% or nonfat milk) and decreased offerings of foods higher in fat, sugar, and sodium -- foods that are more likely to contribute to children's future ill health (Table). In order to implement these changes, a small increase in program funding is needed, an amount that will seem even lower when compared with potential medical costs if steps are not taken now to improve child nutrition Some may ask why schools should take action when it is up to parents to decide what children eat. Parents are responsible for their children's diets; however, children are in the care of schools for a large part of their lives. Children receive up to half of their calories at school in the form of school lunches, breakfasts, and snacks. Furthermore, the reach of the National School Lunch Program is wide. It is available in 99% of public schools and 83% of all schools (private and public schools combined). The School Breakfast Program is available in 85% of public schools.

Each element of our personal lives entails negotiation talents. The capacity to negotiate determines the boost to accomplishments, prospects, and enhances relations. Negotiating talents are not considered aspects of this country's schooling; although negotiation is used more frequently than mathematics ability, each day of the week. These talents generate the center of occupational and private lives. In our negotiation process with prioritizing in most cases are under the rule of irrational escalation of commitment. According to Lewicki-Saunders-Barry, escalation of commitment is partly individual perception and judgment (2006). According to Lewicki−Saunders−Barry, we consider negotiation as a process between individuals, within groups, organizations, between groups reaching joint agreement about differing needs or ideas.” For some people, negotiating appears easy, but other people view the process of negotiation as a conflict (Lewicki, Saunders, & Barry, 2006).  The purpose of this paper is to define communication and personality in negotiation and the roles of how they contribute or detract...

Discussion Board

...Iesha Fox July 19th, 2012 MGMT 250 Discussion Board 1 Prof. John Hargiss Entrepreneurship Discussion Question 1 Over the past few years, our economy has gotten worse and worse, but I would still take the risk of opening up my own business. To me, now would be the perfect time to open up. I think this because no matter how bad the economy is, that won’t stop anyone from going out and purchasing anything from stores. Although there are pros and cons to starting your own business right now, I would still go for it. I believe before anyone opens up their own business, you have to know what you are getting into. You have to have a lot of knowledge and have to be very committed to what you are about. I think before starting your own, you need to at least work in a business for maybe two or three years. That way you know what goes on inside the business. Try to talk to someone that owns a business so that you can get some key pointers what will help along the way. Another important thing to consider before you get started is money. You have to have money to make money. I know it takes a lot of money to get started, so you have to think are you really prepared to start your own business. Most people try to get loans from banks. But to do this, you need a credit score of “700”. You need to be able to manage your money, if you don’t know how the business won’t last long because you’ll soon go bankrupt because you aren’t keeping up. The statement “A student whose main......
