Serving on the Board of Directors

The Iowa Association of School Boards is governed by a 17-member Board of Directors, which includes officers as well as regional directors from nine Director Districts and representatives from Iowa area education agencies and community colleges. Directors serve three-year terms. The IASB President-elect is elected by the Delegate Assembly for a two-year term.

Candidates Sought for Open Officer Positions

Nominations for IASB president-elect and IASB treasurer are open to any member of a local school board in good membership standing with IASB. Both of these positions have a two-year term which will begin in January 2025. Nominees do not have to be a current member of the IASB Board of Directors.

As officers for the association, both positions require the ability to serve as a spokesperson and advocate for IASB, local governance and public education; and a time commitment to statewide leadership, including the ability to serve on related boards and committees. In addition, the treasurer position requires demonstrated experience in budgeting, financial statement analysis and financial planning.

To be considered, interested candidates must submit an Officer Candidate Data Sheet by July 1, 2024. The forms may be downloaded below.

The timeline for selection of the president-elect and treasurer are listed below:

  • July 1, 2024: Nominations due. Submit candidate forms to IASB office.
  • Summer 2024: Interviews to be scheduled with Nominating Committees. The Nominating Committees are comprised of three members of the IASB Board of Directors.
