1. He/she should have a personal integrity, intelligence, and appreciation of the values of good education.

2. He/she should be a responsible citizen, willing to devote the necessary time to his/her board member duties, and capable of assuming his/her responsibilities. He/she should have the ability to work with others and should have the courage of his/her convictions.
