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



NASBE recognizes two affiliate organizations, NCSBEE and NCOSEA, whose members do not vote for NASBE officers but are otherwise entitled to the full benefits of membership.

National Council of State Boards of Education Executives

The National Council of State Boards of Education Executives (NCSBEE) is a national organization serving individuals who provide administrative and other support to state boards of education. Because their positions are unique in the state education agency, executives find communication and joint professional development activities with their counterparts in other states very helpful. NCSBEE serves that need by providing a formal and informal network for assistance and support, as well as by organizing annual meetings that feature professional development opportunities and discussions of educational issues. Contact NCSBEE President Alicia Williams for more information.

 

National Council of State Education Attorneys

The National Council of State Education Attorneys (NCOSEA)  comprises attorneys who represent and advise state boards of education. NCOSEA provides a forum for these attorneys to study and exchange information on legal issues of concern to state education policymakers. NCOSEA also serves as a valuable NASBE communications link by identifying emerging legal issues, disseminating information to state board members and state education attorneys, and providing data on state and federal education litigation. Contact NCOSEA President Tiffany Lucas for more information.
