June advocacy tip: consider serving on WASB Policy & Resolutions Committee

As a member of the WASB, you have the opportunity to play in active part in determining our positions on key issues. The Policy & Resolutions Committee plays an integral role in what resolutions are debated and voted on each year at the Delegate Assembly meeting at the State Education Convention. Resolutions adopted at the Delegate Assembly become the official positions of the WASB.

The Policy and Resolutions Committee is appointed annually by the WASB President following recommendations made by the members of our Board of Directors.  The committee is comprised of a least one school board member from each WASB region and from each type of school district (i.e., common, unified, K-8 and UHS).

The Committee will review proposed resolutions submitted by member boards by Sept. 15, 2018 and decide which will be advanced to the January 2019 Delegate Assembly. The Committee may modify board-submitted resolutions or suggest its own resolutions for consideration by the Delegate Assembly.

The Committee will meet twice—on Sept. 28-29 in Madison and on Nov. 10 in Wisconsin Rapids.

If you are interested in serving on the Policy and Resolutions Committee, either this year or in the future, please contact your WASB Regional Director.
