The 2020 MSBA Delegate Assembly is scheduled to convene at 6 p.m. Wednesday, December 2, 2020, in a virtual format. Details will be available later this fall.
MSBA's Legislative Policies are adopted through the Delegate Assembly — which is recognized as one of the most effective grassroots 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.
