IASB issues Master Board Member awards

IASB gave out Master Board Member awards to 644
school board members at division meetings this fall.
IASB handed out Master Board Member awards to 644 dedicated school board members at fall division dinner meetings.

Now in its 30th year, the awards program is designed to recognize board members for the time and effort they devote to public education and leadership activities in various IASB and/or NSBA activities.

This fall, 137 members received awards for reaching Level I and 99 were awarded for achieving Level II. Both levels are part of a multi-step process that precedes Master Board Member status. A total of 150 individual school board members achieved Master Board Member status for the first time, and another 258 were recognized for maintaining their status.

Points are earned by attending division meetings, governing meetings, legislative leadership programs as well as holding positions of leadership within the Association. A designated number of Master Board Member points are assigned to each event, activity, or position. In addition, the program recognizes the service and participation of school board members in NSBA activities and other events beyond their local districts.

More information about this recognition program for school board service can be found here. Board members can access their personal participation records by signing into “My Account” at and clicking “Education and Recognition.” Members who wish to “Opt In/Out” of the program may also do so online.
