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

At our Annual Meeting in San Diego (Oct. 25-28, 2023), the Delegate Assembly will meet to choose new NASBE leadership. Also, NASBE’s annual awards will be presented. We have launched the processes to receive recommendations for the board officer elections and nominations for NASBE 2023 awards. The deadline for NASBE awards and recommendations for NASBE board nominations is June 9, 2023. Please contact Celina Pierrottet with questions about board recommendations and award nominations.


NASBE Board of Directors 2023-24 Elections

NASBE members recommend board colleagues for the positions of NASBE chair-elect, secretary-treasurer, and area directors for the Northeastern and Southern regions on NASBE’s 2023-24 Board of Directors. The election will occur during the Delegate Assembly and during Area Meetings this October. If you wish to recommend someone for these important offices, please refer to the process and forms here. Recommendations from a state require state board action, so please plan ahead.


NASBE 2023 Awards

Each year, the National Association of State Boards of Education recognizes distinguished leaders for their contributions to improving education for all children. Up to three “Distinguished Service” awards are given to state board members from across the country for their outstanding contributions to education. New this year, one additional distinguished service award is given to a student board member or member of a board’s student advisory council. Three awards awards are given to non-board member individuals: the “Policy Leader of the Year”,  “Friend of Education,” and the “David A. Kysilko Award.” The Awards Committee appreciates having a wide variety of excellent candidates from which to choose in making their recommendations.

We urge all NASBE member states to nominate at least one person or organization in each award category. The mere nomination is a great honor for those so recognized. Read more about the NASBE awards and process for nominating a colleague here.
