Pre-Board Candidate Workshop

The latest edition of the Ohio School Board Association (OSBA) newsletter came in the mail yesterday, and there is a notice within its pages of a free workshop for people who are thinking about running for school board.

The workshop will describe the roles and responsibilities of boardmanship and requirements of running for a seat on a local board of education. Scheduled for Saturday, July 25 from 10 to noon, the workshop will be led by two veteran OSBA staff members. They will allow time for questions as well.

Space is limited! If anyone is interested, you should contact OSBA Workshop Specialist Laurie Miller at (614) 540-4000; (800) 589-OSBA; or email L_Miller@osba-ohio.org to register.
The OSBA website also has more information for candidates: www.osba-ohio.org/boardcan.htm and you can learn about this and other board candidate workshops at www.osba-ohio.org/training.htm
