Nominations Open: NASBE’s 2021 Awards and Board of Directors
NASBE is pleased to open nominations for its 2021 national awards and board officers.
Each year, the NASBE recognizes distinguished leaders for their contributions to improving education for all children. Two awards are given to individuals: the “Policy Leader of the Year” and “Friend of Education” awards. Up to three “Distinguished Service” awards are given to state board members from across the country for their outstanding contributions to education. The Board of Directors may also designate a “David A. Kysilko Award” winner, an individual who has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to NASBE values and service of state boards of education. Winners will be nationally recognized at NASBE’s Annual Conference in October 2021.
This year, NASBE members will elect: chair-elect, secretary-treasurer, and area directors for the Northeastern and Southern regions. The election will occur during the Delegate Assembly. If you wish to nominate someone for these important offices, please refer to the process and forms here. The deadline for nominations is May 28, 2021.
