NJSBA Core Beliefs

Member Guide

Established in 1914, the New Jersey School Boards Association is a federation of all of the states local boards of education. The 4,800 local board members who comprise our membership are the largest group of elected and appointed public officials in New Jersey. The Association provides inservice training and technical assistance to these members, all of whom serve without compensation. In addition, the Association advocates the education, health and safety interests of New Jerseys public school students and school districts.

Local board of education members are the Associations core member group. However, NJSBA extends the privilege of associate membership to individuals and organizations whose work or interests address the concerns and mission of the Association.

Dues, established by the Board of Directors, entitle associate members to a variety of programs, publications and services regularly available to members. Currently, associate memberships are available for the following groups:
