At the Princeton Marriott from Feb. 22 through Feb. 24, 100 recently elected board members underwent intensive training on how to effectively fulfill their responsibilities.

NJSBA Executive Director Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod praised their hard work and dedication. It was the second weekend training session offered this year.

“The participants in this year’s New Board Member Orientation weekends impressed me with their commitment to children, coupled with a burning desire to learn the intricacies of school governance,” Feinsod said.

“We thank the New Jersey Schools Insurance Group and ETS, which fully fund the January and February programs, respectively, as well as the NJSBA staff for their hard work in developing the training program,” Feinsod added. “Kudos to our group leaders, the seasoned school board members who are the heart and soul of the weekend. They are certainly models of effective board membership in every sense of the term.”
