About Governmental Relations


The Governmental Relations Team is the lobbying arm of NCSBA. We represent North Carolina’s 115 local school boards and the Cherokee Central School as the unified voice for all school districts across the State.

We’re responsible for tracking bills, observing session votes and carrying out the legislative agenda adopted by the NCSBA Delegate Assembly. Our team attends House and Senate committee meetings and frequently provides testimony on issues that impact K-12 education. We meet with state legislators, the congressional delegation, other educational groups and government agencies to cultivate relationships and influence legislation. Additionally, the team monitors state agencies and advocates on an as needed basis.
