Develop TASB's Priorities at Grassroots
TASB Governmental Relations staff is currently facilitating grassroots meetings during which all local trustees are invited to help develop TASB's legislative agenda for the 2016-18 biennium. The revamped meetings are shorter, include ample time for discussion of pressing education issues, feature remarks from legislators, and provide more training credit than previously offered. Your input is vital to this process. Register for your local meeting today!
