The Michigan Montessori Society is an independent, non-profit organization whose goal is to promote, develop and disseminate the educational philosophy and principles of Maria Montessori, fostering their integration with the American educational and cultural environment.
Through the support of the general and professional members, the Society continues to advance its goals. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Montessori education. The Michigan Montessori Society offers to its members and affiliate schools a number of services. The Society sponsors two workshops each year, in the fall and spring of the academic year. The Society publishes a quarterly newsletter and a member directory is published each year in early spring. The newsletters and the member directory are e-mailed to each member.
Board of Directors
The MMS Board consists of twelve members, elected for three-year terms. Each year, four board seats are open for election. Nominations can be made to members of the Election Committee, appointed by the President of the Board each September. Ballots are mailed to all members in May and counted at the June meeting.
