An Executive Director will report to the Board of Directors with monthly reports, however, the board only meets three times a year unless called for a Special Meeting of the Board to discuss immediate issues of operation or new funding. This nonprofit will own the rights to all curriculum, data, intellectual property, logo, buildings, and land for the development of places and spaces for the education of young children and the support of their parents and families. The management and organization of the Negus Education World Child Development Center (NEWCDC) will be based on a board of directors and three directors, the Executive Director, Center director, Fundraising and Marketing Director (Includes Federal Grant Manager and Local Grant Manager) and Financial Directors who will manage the operations of the child development center which is managed and organized by the nonprofit board of directors.
