2017 New Member Institute – Register Today!

Registration now OPEN!

When June 9-10, 2017 (adjourn by noon on Saturday)

Where: Arlington, Virginia

Hotel Information: Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel | 2800 S Potomac Ave, Arlington, VA 22202

The program for this event is in development (see a previous year’s program here), but our goals are always the same. State board of education members who attend NASBE’s New Member Institute will:

  • Learn what it takes to be a successful and productive member of a state board of education.
  • Build the skills needed to do the job: parliamentary procedure, communicating in the era of social media, working with the state legislature and other key stakeholders, working with the news media, working with fellow board members.
  • Discuss common policy concerns and issues, and discover real-world examples of how state boards of education are successfully addressing them.
  • Establish working relationships with new state board of education members from across the country.
  • Gain an understanding of NASBEā€™s resources and how the organization can help state boards in their important work.

NASBE will assume responsibility for airfare and other travel costs (up to $500), hotel, and registration costs for a maximum of two new board members from each dues-paying state to attend the New Member Institute. Additional board members may attend at their state’s expense ($500 for new board members from a dues-paying state; $525 for veteran board members from a dues-paying state; $925 for board members from non-NASBE member states, plus travel and lodging expenses). Direct questions to Sharon Cannon at sharon.cannon@nasbe.org, or read our Frequently Asked Questions.
