2019 MSBA Delegate Assembly Meeting

The 2019 MSBA Delegate Assembly is scheduled for Friday, December 6, and Saturday, December 7, 2019, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis — Park Place.

  • MSBA's Legislative Policies are adopted through what is recognized as one of the most grass-roots approaches of any of the interests represented at the state Capitol. School board members from throughout the state are elected for a two-year term by their peers to serve as Delegates.
  • Each December, Delegates discuss and vote on various legislative resolutions submitted by school boards and individual school board members. Those resolutions that receive a majority vote, as well as positions adopted during previous years, become the basis for MSBA staff lobbying efforts on behalf of all public school board members in the state.


  • MSBA reimburses Delegates for necessary travel expenses, including meals, mileage at the IRS Rate, and Friday night’s lodging expense at the DoubleTree hotel (see second bullet point below). 
  • NOTE: For your hotel room, MSBA reimburses Delegates up to $102 plus tax. Any amount over $102 plus tax will be the responsibility of you or your school district
