CASB believes that local school boards can only be as good as the quality of their leadership. To that end, we offer our members numerous training, education and networking opportunities throughout the year to strengthen your governance role. From conferences and workshops to regional meetings and our annual convention, our goal is to provide our members with the knowledge and tools necessary for a school board leadership role. Be sure to also explore all of the resources in our Learning Center.
