NJSBA’s popular New Board Member Weekend Orientation returned this winter for the first time since early 2020. Two weekends — held Feb. 3-5 and March 10-12, provided training to nearly 200 new board members.
The training covered a wide range of topics, including the School Ethics Act, board governance, student achievement, policy, school finance and the Open Public Meetings Act.
The small group breakout sessions are one of the highlights of the weekend program. The small groups, led by volunteer veteran board members, provide the opportunity for board members to ask questions, share experiences and build a network of trusted colleagues.
The program is provided at no cost to local boards and their members.
