The City of Asheville has imposed an indoor mask mandate, and the hotel and NCSBA are obligated to comply with that mandate. Therefore, masks will be required inside the hotel lobbies, public restrooms, and in the conference room. We are not able to guarantee a socially distanced event; please consider that before making the decision whether to register.
Core training is NCSBA’s foundational sessions for new and veteran board members. Formerly called School Board 101, Core training helps strengthen governance skills and solidify your boardsmanship foundation.
