About Us

Our Vision & Mission

In addition to hosting up to four events per year, NTAASB is also a proud sponsor of the TASB Grassroots Meetings

that afford trustees the opportunities to participate in formulation of the TASB Legislative Advocacy Agenda.    

Message from the President


Dear NTAASB Members & Friends:


Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! Summer has come to an end, and the excitement of another school year is in the air.


It’s once again that time when every teacher, administrator, student, and parent is getting ready for school. Teachers soon will be returning to their classrooms, administrators are making sure that campuses are ready and prepared to receive students on their first day of school, and students soon will readjust their routine to wake up early and get to school on time.


The North Texas Area Association of School Boards (NTAASB) has been busy preparing for this school year. We have identified and chosen program dates, topics, and speakers who will be engaging, timely, informative, and relevant to the work we do as trustees in our public schools. We will host three (3) programs during the 2019-20 school year and co-sponsor with TASB two (2) Grassroots meetings in the spring.


If you are currently a NTAASB member, we thank you for your continued participation and support. If you and your fellow board members are not yet members, please consider joining our professional organization. You will find out about issues that impact your school districts and campuses, such as school safety, legislative priorities and mandates, A-Z performance ratings, school funding, and school finance reform. You also have the opportunity to network with colleagues AND receive 2.0 hours of continued training credits for each meeting you attend. 


I am honored to once again serve as our organization’s president for this school year, and I welcome the opportunity to be of service to the school board members and school districts in ESC Regions 10 and 11. Together, we continue to offer our services to our school board members, superintendents, and school districts.


NTAASB invites you to join us at our first meeting, to be held on Wednesday evening, September 11, 2019, as well as at our breakfast social on Saturday morning, September 21, 2019 at the TASA/TASB Convention at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX.


On behalf of the NTAASB Board of Directors, we wish you a very successful start to a fabulous school year!
