Through a comprehensive grassroots network, the association advocates for the legislative positions approved by delegates from member boards at the annual Delegate Assembly. By adhering to effective communications strategies, GSBA strives to keep members up-to-date on education issues and best practices.
Be a Well-Informed Advocate
GSBA’s advocacy program includes having a presence at the table when education policy and legislation are being considered. This activity is year round. Members are included in numerous ways to assure that the association’s positions represent our membership. Communications efforts to inform stakeholders include print and online publications, email, web and face-to-face communications.
