    New Board Member Boot Camp

    8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.Statehouse Convention Center, Little Rock


    The New Board Member Boot Camp will run concurrently with the first day of ASBA's 66th Annual Conference. This day-long event 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 boot camp 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.

    WHEN: New Board Member Boot Camp will be held Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2019. Check-in will begin at 7:30 a.m. in the Osage Room of the Statehouse Convention Center. The morning session will take place from 8:30 a.m.-noon, lunch is from noon-1:15 p.m., and the afternoon session will be held from 1:30-4 p.m. Lunch is included with registration.
