How We Are Governed

NASB is governed by an Executive Committee and Board of Directors consisting of local school board members from ​districts throughout the state. 

The Executive Committee is comprised of NASB officers and former NASB presidents still serving in their school districts. Additionally, there is a rural liaison and, if needed, liaisons from Clark County and Washoe County. We always include at least two voting members from Clark County and one from Washoe County. 

Members of the Board of Directors include active members of NASB, all of whom are currently serving in their school districts.
