    New School Board MemberThe day-long New Board Member Institute with Audit Training is designed for recently elected school board members in the transition from private citizen to public official. With the increasing demand for educational excellence and fiscal accountability, the responsibilities of school boards are more complex than ever before. This institute will provide critical information and resources to help new board members become effective board members quickly.  Veteran board members and superintendents are encouraged to attend as well. It's a great opportunity for them to refresh, recharge and work with new board colleagues.

    The agenda will cover such topics as the basics of board governance, the Freedom of Information Act, ethics, the roles and responsibilities of board members, fiscal oversight, and the legally required audit training for board members. Click here to view the NBMI agenda.
