Sample news releases available prior to Conference

IASB recommends that school boards document all their professional development experiences and expenses at the Joint Annual Conference.

Sample news releases are available to assist those districts that want to pro-actively share what they will do and/or did at the 2017 Joint Annual Conference. These news releases are designed to allow district leaders to specify who attended, how much was spent, and how it all fits into district budget and professional development goals.

Get access by logging-in to the IASB member database, choosing the Members-Only tab at the top of the page, and selecting Annual Conference from the drop-down menu. There, find the section entitled “Sample News Releases,” and follow the link.

IASB also encourages school boards to adopt a policy in support of professional development for board members that permits and encourages ongoing leadership training, including attendance at the Joint Annual Conference. The Association offers a sample policy (2:120) on this subject through PRESS, IASB’s Policy Reference Education Subscription Service.

More information about the Conference, to be held Nov. 17-19 in Chicago, is available here.
