New State Board Member Institute

Each year NASBE gives new state board members the opportunity to gather with experienced board members and staff at the New State Board Member Institute. NASBE helps support these new members by covering the costs of two members from each state. Held every July, the Institute is designed to equip new board members with skills, knowledge, and insider tips that will enable them to be more effective board members.
