NSBA’s new governance model allows ALL school districts—from non-member state associations—to attend NSBA Signature Events.

Districts in member state associations that are in good standing with their state association are eligible to attend at a discounted rate.  Districts who do not currently maintain membership in a member state association are NOT eligible to attend NSBA events or participate in NSBA programs.

To confirm the membership status of your state school board association, or for more information, please email info@nsba.org.
