Election Day is almost here, and soon many people will go from being school board candidates to school board members. Once elected, what should a new board member be prepared for? What is a board member’s legal responsibility? How does one get information to make informed decisions?

Please join host Ray Pinney on BlogTalkRadio as the program explores these and other issues pertaining to being a newly-elected board member in What Board Candidates Should Know before Taking Office. Carl Tanksley, Director, NJSBA Legal and Labor Relations Services Department and Terri Lewis, NJSBA field service representative, will discuss critical topics facing new board members, in the program that airs at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 30.

BlogTalkRadio, which can be heard live or listened to later via NJSBA’s website, is a radio interview program conducted online. Listeners may call in to speak with the host by dialing (347) 989-8904

If you are a school board candidate, this program will help you be prepared for your first meeting.
