The 2018 MSBA Delegate Assembly is scheduled for Friday, November 30, and Saturday, December 1, 2018, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis — Park Place.

  • MSBA's Legislative Policies 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.
  • 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.
