Lighting the Way for 100 Years: 1913-2013
The Illinois Association of School Boards was launched in December 1913, by a group of school board members at a meeting in Quincy, Illinois. Today, more than 99 percent of the school boards in Illinois hold active membership and support the Association through annual dues.
The 100-year history of the organization was celebrated throughout the 2013 calendar year. Various activities and events were held to observe this milestone. Several publications were also used to chronicle the Association history, including a special commemorative book, a series of articles in The Illinois School Board Journal, and in a daily log of facts that appeared on the home page of the IASB public website.
Coverage from the events was published throughout the year in the Illinois School Board Newsbulletin and posted online.
