NJSBA reminds board members who are interested in attending the National School Boards Association’s (NSBA) Advocacy Institute from Jan. 24- 26 in Washington, D.C. that now is the time to get your local board’s approval to attend the training program.

The Advocacy Institute will feature sessions to help board members develop a winning strategy to make them better advocates for their local school districts – at both the national and the state level.

The conference will also allow members to expand their network by sharing best practices, challenges and successes with board members from other states.

New Jersey board members will take part in “A Day on the Hill,” to visit the state’s congressional delegation. A congressional breakfast is tentatively planned for that day.

Registration The registration fee for the Advocacy Institute is $695. Online registration is available. Hotel accommodations are available at the Marriot Marquis Washington, D.C.; registration is available here.

For more information, contact Sharon Seyler, NJSBA legislative advocate, via email or by telephone at (609) 278-5282.
