Topics, briefings announced
for first round of 2019 Division Meetings

Programming has been announced for IASB’s Spring 2019 Division Meetings. Topics include a wide variety of trending topics of importance, including trauma-informed practices and resilience, the tragedy of child sex trafficking, collective bargaining, educational equity, and more.

The Spring 2019 meetings will also include Candidate Briefings, which will provide school board candidates with an overview of the roles and responsibilities of an elected school board member and an idea of what to expect if they are successful in the April elections. Some candidate briefings take place prior to the scheduled meeting, others are included in the breakout sessions. Attendees are encouraged to check the flyers for their division's meeting.

Each Division Meeting also offers networking opportunities and updates from Association staff and division representatives.

Online registration is required and can be completed through IASB’s “My Account” button at iasb.com. Attendance at Division Meetings earns participants five points in IASB’s Master Board Member Program.

The updated list of dates, locations, and programming for each Division Meeting is below.
