How We Are Governed

NASB is governed by a Board of Directors made up of local school board members from ​districts throughout the state. 

The NASB Board of Directors provide leadership and oversight for the Association. Members of the Board of Directors include active members of the NASB, all of whom are currently serving in their school districts.

The Executive Committee is comprised of the officers of NASB and former NASB presidents still serving in their school districts. Also included are at least two voting members from Clark County and one from Washoe County.
