Board of Directors
The ASBA Board of Directors provides leadership of the organization. Members in each of ASBA’s 14 regions elect a director during the fall Regional Meetings to represent their respective regions. Directors serve staggered three-year terms. Click here to see which districts fall into each region.
School board members who wish to serve as a Regional Director shall submit a Regional Director Nomination Form from their local school boards. The form shall be provided to the ASBA President, with a copy to the Executive Director, at least 14 days before the Regional Meeting at which the election will be held. Read ASBA Bylaws, Article IV, Section 5, regarding criteria and nomination information.
ASBA officers are elected at the Delegate Assembly, which is held during the annual ASBA Conference in December. A person who wishes to serve as President-elect, Vice President or Secretary-Treasurer of the ASBA Board of Directors shall submit an ASBA Officer Declaration of Intent Form to the ASBA President, with a copy to the Executive Director, at least 30 days before the annual meeting of the Delegate Assembly.

On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the Delegates approved the 2020 Beliefs and Resolutions. The proposed 2021 Beliefs and Resolutions will be considered at the Annual Conference on December 8, 2021.
A completed and signed copy of the Form to Submit a Change to the ASBA Beliefs and Resolutions must reach the ASBA President at least ten (10) working days prior to the Delegate Assembly to propose a change to the ASBA Beliefs and Resolutions.
