New Workshop for 2023!

Good Boardsmanship for New Board Members

Tuesday, April 11, 2023





GSBA is pleased to offer a brand new training this year for new school board members. This in-person-only workshop will be an opportunity for new board members to come together to address their questions and discuss issues they are encountering as they have begun their service.


GSBA understands that new school board members are bombarded with information during their two-day new board member orientation, and it can be overwhelming to process. Now that new board members have served in their roles for a few months, this will be an opportunity to come back together to network, ask their burning questions, and learn valuable information to help them succeed in their new roles.


Based on the direct feedback GSBA has received from this year's new board members, the session will provide a deeper dive into topics such as board governance (roles and responsibilities), board norms, board and community relations, board meetings, strategic planning, and superintendent evaluations.


This class is optional, it is not required for new board members. Attendees will receive 4 credit hours. Lunch will also be provided.



The cost to attend this workshop is $185. Cancellations must be submitted in writing to Leigh Crow, no later than 5 business days (Wednesday, April 4) before the event and will assess a $70 fee per individual. No refunds will be provided after this date.



This event will be held in the far left meeting room at the Houston County Board of Education Annex 1600 Macon Road, Perry GA 31069. This is the same location as our New Board Member Orientation in November 2022.
