How to get there


Join us for one of NASBE's most popular professional development events, the New Member Institute! New state board of education members who attend the New Member Institute will:

  • Learn what it takes to be a successful and productive member of a state board of education.
  • Build the skills needed to do the job: parliamentary procedure, communicating in the era of social media, working with the state legislature and other key stakeholders, working with the news media, working with fellow board members.
  • Discuss common policy concerns and issues, and discover real-world examples of how state boards of education are successfully addressing them.
  • Establish working relationships with new state board of education members from across the country.
  • Gain an understanding of NASBE’s resources and how the organization can help state boards in their important work.

NASBE will assume responsibility for airfare/travel up to $500 roundtrip, hotel, and conference meals for a maximum of two new board members from each dues-paying state to attend the New Member Institute. Additional members may attend at their state's expense. Questions? See answers to Frequently Asked Questions or contact Sharon Cannon at 703-740-4824 or by email
