The New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) is currently seeking nominees for its 15th Annual Board Member of the Year Award, which recognizes a local school board member whose work exemplifies commitment not only to the children of his or her community, but also to public education throughout the state of New Jersey.

Board members are encouraged to nominate a fellow board member whom they believe has been an outstanding trustee of public education. NJSBA officers are not eligible for this award.

The NJSBA established the Board Member of the Year award in 2004 to honor an individual board member for exemplary leadership, dedication to his or her professional development,  participation in efforts to advance education governance at the local, county and state levels, and strong commitment to the children of New Jersey.

Nominees must have five consecutive years of experience as a board of education member and must hold the NJSBA Certified Board Member designation. The winner will be recognized at the NJSBA Workshop 2019, to be held on Oct. 21-24 at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

The deadline for receipt of nominations is 4:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6.
