CSBA is made up of nearly 1,000 California school districts and county offices of education, and nearly 5,000 board members.
Members elect representatives from 21 geographic regions to the Delegate Assembly, which is made up of approximately 280 delegates and the Board of Directors. The Delegate Assembly is a vital link in the association’s governance structure and sets the general policy direction for the association. Working with local districts, county offices, the Board of Directors, and Executive Committee, delegates ensure that the association promotes the interests of school districts and county offices of education throughout the state.
CSBA’s Delegate Assembly elects representatives to the Board of Directors, which includes 21 regional representatives, five directors-at-large, four officers, the California County Boards of Education president, and any California board member serving on the board of the National School Boards Association. The board is responsible for setting direction for CSBA by adopting the vision and mission and overseeing the corporate operations of the association.
The Executive Committee is composed of the president, president-elect, vice president, immediate past president and executive director (ex officio). The officers serve for one year in each position and are elected by the Delegate Assembly at their meeting held directly before the CSBA Annual Education Conference. The Executive Committee is responsible for providing leadership between meetings of the Delegate Assembly and Board of Directors, evaluating the chief executive officer/executive director, and acting as spokespersons on behalf of CSBA. CSBA officers also preside over meetings of the Delegate Assembly, Board of Directors and Executive Committee.
