The only organization dedicated solely to helping state boards advance equity and excellence in public education.



NASBE’s membership annually elects individuals to serve on the organization’s board of directors. The board consists of a chair, chair-elect, secretary-treasurer, immediate past-chair, area directors, and a new member representative. According to NASBE Bylaws, the Nominating Committee solicits individual recommendations from NASBE member state boards. The committee then reviews candidates and makes nominations for election. Additional avenues for board nominations exist after the committee has completed its work.

Recommendations for nominations are now being accepted for the 2023-24 NASBE Board of Directors. Members can recommend for nomination candidates for chair-elect, secretary-treasurer, and northeastern and southern area directors only. Individuals elected to these board positions take office at the close of the Annual Business Meeting in October 2023. The deadline for applications is June 9, 2023. Please contact Celina Pierrottet with questions about board nominations.
