The MBEF Business Advisory Council (BAC) allows our Executive Board to update our business partners on MBEF activities, solicit feedback on various subjects, and provide our business leaders with timely school reports from the District Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent in charge of finance.
Our Business Advisory Council meets twice a year for breakfast meetings.
We find our business partnerships invaluable to building a community that is committed to keeping our school district one of the top-performers in the state. If you are interested in becoming a member of our BAC, please contact MBEF Director of Business Development Margo Thole.
