CASBAs

County Area School Board Associations have been an integral part of MASB for more than 40 years. With 42 active local associations, the program is vital to MASB. CASBAs bring local districts together to provide:

  • An opportunity for school board members to get support and information about issues.
  • A forum for discussion of and advocacy for the promotion of these issues.
  • A regional link between MASB and local school board members.

Many board members don't realize that to help finance in-service activities of the CASBAs, MASB returns annually three percent of all dues collected by MASB from the CASBA's member districts. Payment shall be made after receiving each CASBA's annual report and confirmation that the CASBA provided board member in-service.

If you are not already doing so, we encourage you to make sure your CASBA is taking advantage of this program. There are several options, including customized courses/workshops, as well as free, 60-minute presentations.

Fees for other courses/workshops are based on the number of people in attendance and the location.

For more information or to arrange a course/workshop or free presentation, contact Debbie Stair, M.N.M.L., Assistant Director of Leadership Development:
