Executive Committee

Meet Our Team

Our Executive Committee is made of professional educational administrators and experienced financial & insurance experts.

Our Executive Board

Member Controlled

Each member of MSIP has a vote and is an important decision-maker.  Members vote to approve financial statements, audits, large claims, insurance coverages, etc.  This has been key to the success of the organization.


The Executive Board is comprised of CFOs and Superintendents from member districts who are responsible for the management, operations, claims and insurance coverages of MSIP.   Member districts elect Executive Board members annually.  The Full Board, comprised of all MSIP members, have input, control and a voice within the operations.


Transparency is embraced by MSIP.  All members know how every dollar is spent, invested and utilized.  Claims are openly discussed, financials are analyzed, and insurance coverages are crafted – all at the direction of member districts
