Board candidate workshops and webinar

Led by OSBA experts, these five sessions held around the state will lead candidates through a concise and valuable program to help them better understand the everyday roles and responsibilities of school board members and the legal aspects of being a board member. These workshops will be held in September 2023. 

As an alternative, OSBA will offer this workshop as an on-demand webinar in early August. The first half of the webinar will focus on board roles and responsibilities, and the second half will cover campaign finance and legal issues. 

Workshop and webinar participants will receive a Board Candidate Kit, which includes "Candidate: A practical guide to running for school board book;" a subscription to the OSBA Journal, the premier bimonthly magazine for school board members; and a subscription to Briefcase, a semimonthly newsletter.
