In this two-hour webinar, we will discuss the ethical standards established by state law for school board members. The webinar will also include a discussion of state and federal laws related to conflicts of interest pertaining to making and administering contracts and possible legal consequences when these laws are violated. Finally, this webinar will review other well-established legal duties and responsibilities of school board members.
Presenter: Allison Schafer, NCSBA Legal Counsel
Join us October 16-18 for the 2019 Fall Law Conference in Asheville. Board members, administrators, and board attorneys from across the state will come together in the Blue Ridge Mountains for an update on the latest education law topics.
The conference, held at the Renaissance Asheville, will focus on helping board members better understand their role in school system operations — from working with the superintendent and board attorney to responsibilities related to school finance and the employment process.
Conference and Hotel Registration Process
**Our hotel room block is full. If you would like to be added to our waitlist, please contact Debbie Shinbara at email@example.com or 919-747-6698.**
Due to the high demand for sleeping accommodations, the Renaissance Asheville hotel room reservation process will, like last year, be initiated using NCSBA’s online conference registration form. In order to secure a hotel room at the conference rate, you must book the room via the NCSBA webpage at the same time that you register to attend the conference.
- Click here to register.
- Select an attendee and indicate the registration preference.
- If the attendee would like to stay at the Renaissance Asheville during the conference, complete the housing questions indicating the day the person wants to check in, the day the person wants to check out, and the type of room the attendee wants — i.e. either “doubles” or a “king.”
- Indicate if the attendee has special requests — i.e. handicap room, lower level, etc.
- Provide the name of the contact person for confirmation of the hotel reservation. (In most cases this will be the board assistant.)
The contact person should receive a communication from the Renaissance within 7 days from the time the online registration form is submitted. At that time, the Renaissance staff person will need appropriate credit card information to secure the reservation and will provide the contact person with a confirmation number.
