The Manitoba School Boards Association provides services to member boards through its five departments. The responsibilities of each of these departments is described below.

The Executive Office is responsible for the general administration of the association, and for ensuring the implementation of the policies and instructions of the provincial executive. This department provides support services to the executive and many of the association’s committees, and shares advocacy responsibilities with Education and Communication Services.

Corporate Services carries out the accounting functions of the association and related entities (MSI Insurance and the Pension Plan for Non-teaching Employees of Public School Boards in Manitoba), as well as for the Child Nutrition Council of Manitoba. General office management and systems/technology support are also housed in this department.

The Education and Communication Services Department is responsible for the association’s trustee education program, including the fall general meeting and annual convention, provincial and regional workshops, and on-line learning opportunities. It produces print and electronic learning resources, develops association advertising and media campaigns, and maintains the association’s website and membership data bases. It supports individual boards in the areas of board and policy development and procedural matters.

Risk Management Services oversees the MSI insurance program, as well as both Safe Grad and TADD Manitoba programs. Risk Management works closely with schools to ensure student and staff well-being through programs of school and playground inspections, and to help mitigate the potential for loss as a result of fire, flood, theft, or other hazards.

Labour Relations and Human Resource Department is responsible for providing labour relations and personnel services to member school boards in the capacity of advisor, coordinator, and agent. This department assists member boards in the maintenance of good employer-employee relationships through the establishment of fair and reasonable salaries, benefits and working conditions.
