We welcome unsolicited articles from educators, school board members, administrators and others. If you would like to write an article, email the magazine’s editor, Communications Director Sheri Krause.

WASB Connection Podcast

Once a month, the WASB Connection Podcast brings you new conversations about education that help you be a better board member. For those who are unfamiliar with podcasts, they’re like a mix between talk radio and a magazine. Once you subscribe, the newest version is automatically downloaded to your phone or device. There are lots of apps to subscribe to the podcast, including Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

If you would like to join us on the podcast, please email Communications Specialist Dan Linehan.

Member Recognition Program
In recognition of the importance of professional development, the WASB awards points to board members who participate in WASB and NSBA (National School Boards Association) activities. Each August, the WASB sends out a Member Recognition Report, which reflects WASB programs attended for that year and the total accumulated points. Qualifying board members receive pins and certificates at their Regional Meeting that fall.
