The 2017 MSBA Delegate Assembly is scheduled for December 1-2, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis — Park Place. 

MSBA's legislative positions 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.

Delegates come together at the MSBA Delegate Assembly Conference (held each December) to 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.

RESOLUTIONS: Have a legislative resolution that will help your school district and other districts in the state? Submit a legislative resolution form to MSBA by September 29. Resolutions will be debated and voted on by the MSBA Delegate Assembly in December 2017. | Download a Resolution Form (Word document)

DELEGATE COMPENSATION: MSBA reimburses delegates for necessary travel expenses, including meals, mileage at the IRS Rate, and one night’s lodging expense at the DoubleTree hotel. 

HOTEL RESERVATIONS: Delegates will be able to make their hotel reservations in October.
