2022 Fall Regional Meetings
The 2022 Fall Regional Meetings took place in every WASB region across the state and provided an opportunity to network with area board members, celebrate accomplishments and learn about what WASB is doing for you. In Regions 2, 5, 7, 10, 11 and 15, your board voted for a WASB regional director.
The WASB hosted an online regional meeting on Nov. 2 at 7 p.m.
Pre-Regional Meeting Workshop: Running Effective Board Meetings
Workshop: Running Effective Board Meetings
All school boards conduct their business in similar meetings. However, the effectiveness of their meetings can vary widely. How a board conducts its meetings can impact the board’s success in moving the needle on student achievement.
In this workshop, an experienced WASB school attorney reviews the role of the board president in running the meeting. They also review board member roles as well as how to structure meetings to conduct an effective board meeting.
