A reminder: sharing relevant policies can
boost transparency on attending Conference

IASB has long suggested that school boards planning to attend the Joint Annual Conference should be pro-active in documenting their professional development experiences and expenses at the event. One way is to adopt and promulgate a policy that addresses professional development for all school board members. Such a policy may permit and encourage ongoing leadership training for those who have volunteered to serve their community as unpaid school board members.

Thus boards may wish to review their existing policies or consider adopting a policy before attending the 2018 Joint Annual Conference, scheduled for November 16-18 in Chicago.
