Board of Directors

CPSA was established as a waqf for Allah SWT and the community at large. The CPSA Board of Directors is formed of upto 17 parents, alumni, and dedicated members of the community who are elected as volunteers for three year terms to the CPSA Board of Directors. Elections are held every year, and community members are encouraged to nominate themselves and each other to give back to CPSA and the community. Individual members may serve a maximum of two consecutive terms before being required to step down for a minimum of one year, to encourage both new blood and new ideas. A recent amendment to the bylaws permits up to six members that the majority of the board feel are especially deserving to serve 10 year terms instead.

Currently, the CPSA Board of Education is presided over by its chairman, Dr. Mohammed Ilyas.
