- New Board Member Workshop
- Where: OSBA, Columbus
Saturday, Jul. 16, 2016 | 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
School boardmanship is more complex and demanding than ever. To carry out their leadership duties effectively, new school board members must begin moving from the role of an involved citizen to that of a responsible elected or appointed official as soon as possible. High-quality board member education, designed specifically for new board members, can help you become a more effective educational leader in your community.
Cost for this workshop is $160 per board member. Four books are included with workshop tuition: Board-Legislature Partnership, Board-Superintendent Partnership, Board-Treasurer Partnership and Boardmanship.
