ISBA Region Meetings Have Concluded

Thank you to all members of ISBA that participated in their own Region meetings. Fall Region meetings are an important time for board members to meet and discuss the resolutions, that if passed, will become a part of ISBA’s platform for the upcoming Legislative Session. View newsclip.

ISBA Proposed Resolutions Are Now Available

Proposed Resolutions for the 2015 Legislative Session are now available! The ISBA Executive Board has met and reviewed the Resolutions and the Board’s recommendation can be found at the bottom of each Resolution. The Board respectfully requests that trustees meet to discuss these Resolutions and decide how each district will vote prior to the Business Session of the Annual Convention in November. The Proposed Resolutions will also be discussed at the Region meetings happening around the State.
