New board member workshops offer convenient training needed for service

What makes IASB’s New Board Member Workshops the best board member training available? Here are several points worth considering:

  • Convenience – IASB is the only place to meet the PDLT, PERA, and OMA requirements in one day. Attending IASB events means participants will meet all the requirements.
  • Expertise – Attorneys practicing school law throughout Illinois and engaging members from the Illinois Association of School Business Officials will present the latest content.
  • Materials – IASB provides guides, handouts, and three of its latest publications to those attending.
  • Relationships – Participants can make a connection with IASB staff in order to help them and their board learn, grow, and become more effective.
  • Network – IASB training includes valuable networking time with board members throughout the state.
  • Two-Day Package – Day two will give attendees the governance training that is the critical foundation for effective boardsmanship.
  • Close by – this year, there are 20 locations scheduled around the state.
  • Recognition – the two-day training leads to membership in the LeaderShop Academy.
Fourteen workshops remain, Fridays and Saturdays through July 11. For more information visit www.iasb.com/calendar/newBMworkshops2015.pdf. Online registration is available at www.iasb.com/calendar/calendar.cfm
