Consortium of State School Boards Associations (COSSBA)

IASB is a founding member of the Consortium of State School Boards Associations. COSSBA is a non-partisan, national alliance made up of state school board associations to share resources and information to support, promote, and strengthen school board associations that serve local school districts and school board members. Membership in the Consortium is only available to state school board associations, which then provides local districts and state association members access to COSSBA training opportunities, resources, and services.
