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.
Always one of NASBE’s most popular conferences, the program includes case studies in policy development; “how to” sessions on dealing with the media and handling state board business; special current issues sessions; information on how NASBE can assist state boards and individual members; and many opportunities for questions and group participation.
If you are new to your state board and would like to find out more about the New State Board Member Institute and how you can participate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
