CSBA’s Bylaws and Standing Rules outline how the association is governed.
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 270 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.
Board of Directors
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 National School Boards Association Board also serve on CSBA's Board of Directors. The board is responsible for setting direction for CSBA by adopting the vision and mission and overseeing the corporate operations of the association.
The 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 just prior to 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 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.
