The IASB Delegate Assembly convenes annually for three important roles:
  • Annual Meeting
  • Set the Legislative Platform
  • Convene the nominating caucuses to select candidates for the IASB Board of Directors in selected regions.

IASB bylaws give each member board a delegate who casts the board's votes on issues before the Delegate Assembly. School board members provide input on IASB’s legislative platform and your priorities help influence legislators and the governor. By participating in this debate process, school, AEA and community college boards contribute to IASB’s legislative program and ultimately the unified legislative interests of all Iowa school boards.
