The Learning Hub

IASB offers a diverse selection of learning experiences throughout the year to support board/superintendent teams in governance and leadership. As education leaders, you face many complex challenges, which require you to possess a vast range of knowledge and experience—school law, finance, labor relations, policy and budgets, curriculum, not to mention bond campaigns, lobbying, special education and parliamentary procedure—to name a few.

Through convention, conferences, workshops, webinar and podcasts, offered either statewide or regionally, in-district, in-person or digitally, IASB serves member needs for learning and professional development. We are here to help both new and experienced board members build your knowledge, and sharpen your boardsmanship and leadership skills.

Online registration closes one day before the event. Walk-ins are welcome.

Upcoming Events & Learning Opportunities


ISFLC New Superintendents' Conference
Sept. 20
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! Superintendents new to Iowa and new to the role are invited to join us for a complimentary one-day conference as the kick-off event for the annual Iowa Superintendents’ Finance and Leadership Consortium (ISFLC), a robust offering of multiple conferences with intensive tracks, renewal credit, and networking opportunities, in partnership with the UNI Institute for Educational Leadership program.

Delegate Assembly & Annual Meeting
Nov. 16
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.

We are incredibly excited to be planning a vibrant in-person Annual Convention for 2022 and look forward to welcoming you.
