2017 Annual Convention: The Effectiveness Equation: Governing for Student Success - March 16 to 18, 2017
The Association’s Standards for Effective and Efficient School Board Governance—E2G—is predicated on a simple belief: optimally functioning school boards govern effectively by meeting the needs of all students, and they govern efficiently by empowering others to administer and manage the system for which they are ultimately accountable. The 2017 Annual Convention will take a closer look at the effectiveness side of this equation. Registration packages will be sent to boards in the New Year!
Around the Table
"Around the Table" is a five-part series on good governance around the board table. Many problems that may arise at a board table can be handled using sound principles and practices of good governance.

CSBA 2017 Congress & National Trustee Gathering on Aboriginal Education
The CSBA 2017 Congress will be hosted by BCSTA in Whistler, BC, along with the National Trustee Gathering on Aboriginal Education. Details about registration, accommodations and program are available at the CSBA 2017 Congress conference website.
Teams of trustees, senior district educators, principals and business officials are invited to attend this educational showcase, with an overarching theme of cohesive leadership to benefit all students in public education.
January (Virtual) Regional Meetings
While much of the association business normally conducted at January regional meetings was moved to the October meetings, there are two items that must be considered closer to the annual convention: nominations and resolutions. To meet this requirement, as contained in association by-laws, we will be conducting short regional meetings via teleconference or webinar in January. These meetings will deal with nominations and resolutions only.
