The New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA) is the statewide voice for the interests of public boards of education.
NYSSBA serves more than 675 local school boards and boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES), which represent more than 5,200 members – nearly half the elected officials in the state.
In general school board members – who sit on local boards of education – are the educational leaders in their communities. They determine the policies that govern the operation of their local public school systems.
They are elected local officials and, with few exceptions, volunteers. Collectively they guide a statewide school system that expends over $58 billion, employs nearly 520,000 people and serves nearly 2.7 million children.
NYSSBA was founded in 1896 in Utica, New York, as the New York State Association for School Boards. In 1920 the name changed to the State Association of School Boards and Trustees of New York State. By 1929 it became the Associated School Boards and Trustees of the State of New York.

NYSSBA is celebrating our 100th Annual Convention & Education Expo in 2019 and we feel that it will be your best venue in New York State to network with, and show your products to, the largest gathering of school district governance teams in New York.
More than 2,000 school board members, along with superintendents and other educational leaders will gather October 24 - 26, 2019 in Rochester and we invite your company to join us!
