Resolutions adopted by the annual WASB Delegate Assemblies set the direction for the association and provide the WASB viewpoint on any number of topics. It is important for each school board member to give some thought to the goals and direction of school boards and the WASB. If you want the association to take a particular stance on an issue or alter an existing stance on an issue, submit a resolution for consideration at the annual Delegate Assembly.
