The NMC is membership-driven organization where innovative educators come together to exchange ideas and strategies, learn from each other, and be inspired to try new things. Inspired by the five tenets of NMC membership —  building solutions from visions, embracing your inner-lifelong learner, putting people first, playing often, and connecting silos — the NMC Membership Community Advisory Group (AG) is responsible for recommending strategic direction and tactical suggestions for NMC Membership.


  • Individuals who have actively participated on at least one NMC Horizon Expert Panel in the past five years and/or current NMC members.
  • Board members who have at least two years remaining on their board terms.
  • Special appointment by the NMC Executive Director.

*AG participants must maintain active membership status while serving

The NMC Membership project lead will chair this AG.

Term and Commitment
AG participants will hold two-year terms. Monthly conference calls, ad hoc asynchronous advice, an annual F2F or virtual retreat, and an NMC Summer Conference (hybrid, face-to-face, and virtual) meet-up are expected. Anticipated commitment is approximately 20 hours annually. Terms will commence in June at the NMC Summer Conference where three incoming participants will replace three outgoing participants. 

Note: The inaugural charter AG will include three community members who will serve October 2017 to June 2019, three community members who will serve October 2017 to June 2020, and one board member who will serve October 2017 to June 2019. Subsequent participants will serve two-year terms as long as eligibility requirements are maintained.

Participants have the potential to influence the strategic direction of NMC Membership. AG participation is a unique leadership opportunity for NMC members to share their experience, exercise their opinions, apply their insights, and amplify their voices in ways to make the NMC Membership more meaningful than ever. Participation is also a way to network and connect with a small group of engaged NMCers. AG participants are recognized on the NMC website. All work is done on a voluntary basis and any required travel will be assumed by the NMC.

How to Participate
For now, appointment to this inaugural AG is by invitation only. In the future, those interested in participating who meet the eligibility and commitment criteria above, will be invited to self-nominate or be nominated by others.
