Election Day is almost here and soon many people will go from being a school board candidate to being a school board member.  Once elected, what should the new board member be prepared for?  What is your legal responsibility?

How do you get information to make informed decisions?  What is the relationship between the board and the superintendent?

On Monday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these and other issues with Carl Tanksley, director, NJSBA Legal and Labor Department and Terri Lewis, NJSBA field service representative.  You are also invited to ask questions of the participants either via a chat room or by calling.

The podcast will be broadcast live on BlogTalkRadio, NJSBA’s online program, and will be archived for later listening. To contact the host during the program, please call (347) 989-8904.

If you are a school board candidate, this program will help you be prepared for your first meeting.
