New Board Member Workshops

IASB's New Board Member Workshops are designed to meet the needs of newly elected school board members.

New Board Member Workshops are held after the consolidated election at various locations throughout the state during the months of June and July.

The next round of New Board Member Workshops will be scheduled in 2021.

Workshop participants will be able to complete their mandatory board training on Friday. The Saturday sessions will provide board members with essential information to understand and fulfill their governance role.
