Current episode show notes:

Newly elected school board members are taking their oath of office this month. In an effort to help them be effective as quickly as possible, the WASB holds gatherings across the state for new board members every April. This year, the gatherings are Tuesday through Thursday, April 19-21. Find details at the event website.
 
This month, we speak with the WASB’s Ben Niehaus and Bob Butler about both these gatherings and their general advice for new school board members. 
 
If you’re a veteran board member in Wisconsin, we encourage you to share this episode and a link to our New School Board Member Handbook.
