DashBoard, Sept. 4, 2019

As MASB staff continues to delve into the results of the 2019 Membership Survey (thank you again to those who completed!), we’re working at implementing some initial findings.

As such, we plan to continue the DashBoard summer schedule throughout the year by sending the newsletter every other week.

This year’s Delegate Assembly is one important way you can be involved and influence your statewide association. It’s your opportunity to voice your board’s opinion on state issues and public education in Michigan. MASB’s 2019 Delegate Assembly will begin Friday, Nov. 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the Grand Traverse Resort & Spa in Acme (please note different day/time than usual).

One of the most useful tools for efficient meetings is a “consent agenda.” This is a single item of business on a regular agenda that includes several items bundled together. The items cannot be discussed or debated. They are approved with a single vote.
