2012 Region Meetings
The 2012 ASBSD Region Meetings are set to begin with legislative platforms and advocating for Initiated Measure 15 expected to be the key points discussed. ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany will embark on a tour across the state with 10 stops scheduled over September and October and urges school board members to attend the region meeting nearest to their district to join in the discussion on these important issues.
“At the meetings, I plan to generate not only dialogue, but plans of advocacy that our board members can use in their districts when they discuss Initiated Measure 15 with community members and on proposed legislation when they sit down with their area legislators,” Pogany said.
Board members can attend a regional meeting at no charge, but are asked to register before the meeting.
