Welcome new board members! Congratulations on being elected to your local school board.
There is no greater contribution than serving as a member of the leadership team that provides educational opportunities for the children in your community. The Arkansas School Boards Association is here to help those who are newly or recently elected to local school boards by once again offering our one-day New Board Member Institute. Of course, veteran members are always welcome to attend. Their presence lends great support to newer members.
To help members start out and stay on the right path, this institute will include an overview of topics important for new board members. We believe it will provide a solid foundation for the first months in office and beyond. Over the day, topics will include board governance, school finance, school law, and other legal issues that are critical to successful board operations.
Registration is now open for ASBA’s 2020 New Board Member Institute (NBMI) to be held on September 21, 2020, at the Hot Springs Convention Center. Registration and breakfast begin at 7:30 a.m. and the program at 8:30. School board members will earn six hours of boardsmanship training credit for attending.
