How to change your district's board president and vice present titles in ASBA system

We know this is the time where many school boards are voting to elect a new president and vice president to serve for 2018. Ellen White will be sending all school district administrative assistants an email with instructions to update this information in the ASBA system. If you still don't know how to sign into the system, please contact Nicole Powers for a sign in and password.


Are you still looking for your board member's Annual Conference photo?

If your school board member received an award at the Annual Conference and had their photo taken, please check the ASBA Photo Gallery on the website. If you are in need of a video ASBA filmed for your district for board award or school/school district program, please contact Brooke Razo and we can send directly to you. All videos will be available on the ASBA YouTube channel as well.


An association for administrative professionals coming soon

We are still working on the creation of the Arizona Association of Administrative Professionals for all administrative professionals from member districts. We will keep you updated with new information.
