The Tour marks the first step toward advocacy for the 2016 legislative session. At this meeting, MSBA members will discuss policy and funding issues that are impacting their respective school districts — which will help generate ideas for MSBA’s 2016 legislative agenda.

Area legislators will also be in attendance — which will provide MSBA members with a great advocacy opportunity.

Attendees will also receive a briefing from MSBA’s Government Relations team and an update from MSBA executives on the future of the association.

MSBA will also hand out Leadership Development Certificates to those members who have completed MSBA’s Phase I, Phase II and Phase III training workshops. Click here to see if you will be receiving a Leadership Development Certificate during the Tour.
