The New Jersey School Board Association’s semiannual Delegate Assembly will be held Saturday, May 14, at the Conference Center at Mercer County Community College, located in West Windsor. It will begin at 9 a.m.

The twice-yearly meeting of the full NJSBA membership sets the policies that determine the Association’s position on educational issues and establishes bylaws that govern its operations.

On the tentative agenda for the Delegate Assembly: an opportunity for the membership to meet the incoming NJSBA executive director.

“The Executive Director Search Committee is anticipating that at the meeting it will introduce the new NJSBA executive director, who will replace Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, who is retiring after nearly 10 years as the Association’s leader,” said Irene LeFebvre, NJSBA president.

“The successful candidate for the position must be approved by the NJSBA board of directors, which we anticipate will happen the night before the DA, at the May 13 board of directors meeting,” LeFebvre said. “The Delegate Assembly will also present an opportunity to recognize Dr. Feinsod’s accomplishments and contributions to NJSBA.”

The Delegate Assembly will also be livestreamed through the NJSBA’s online conference platform, Swoogo. All board members are welcome and encouraged to attend virtually but have the option to attend in person.

However, those designated by their board of education to serve as the official voting delegate must register for the in-person meeting as only delegates attending in person will have the ability to speak and vote.

Board Member Academy credit is awarded to those attending the DA, either virtually or in person.

Registration will open shortly. More information is available on the Delegate Assembly here.
