Engage, Advocate, and Connect

The Federal Relations Network (FRN) is our core grassroots network. The FRN provides a unique opportunity for local school board members to be engaged with their members of Congress. Appointed by one’s state school boards association, an FRN member plays a critical role that involves a year-round commitment.

As a year-round advocate FRN members:

  • Develop key relationships with your members of Congress.
  • Receive vital information throughout the year concerning federal legislation and action.
  • Respond to NSBA calls to action.
  • Share calls to action with fellow school board members.

If you are not a school board member but would like to get involved in advocating for public education, visit the nsbac.org website. You can learn more about the ways you can become involved in our other grassroots components, which include: NSBAC's Friends of Public Education and organization partnerships.
