VASSP January Board Meeting

The Virginia Association of Secondary School Principals (VASSP) held their first board meeting of the new year today, January 18, 2016. As usual, the agenda was full and the topics were varied.
Part of the day was spent discussing possible sites for upcoming state conferences. If you have never attended a VASSP state conference, make plans now to attend this summer’s event in Williamsburg. It is a fantastic professional development opportunity that will benefit you and your school.
Other items on the agenda included an update on possible general assembly bills that can have an effect on our profession. The board also discussed member recruitment. This is a standard item on the agenda for each meeting, as it is the lifeblood of any organization. Our board members work very hard to recruit new members for a variety of reasons. The most important one though is the impact our numbers have when to comes to influencing the decisions being made by the General Assembly. Our full time government relations director Bet Neale updates the board on a regular basis so that we can inform our members.
Other reports include the Executive Directors Report, Regional Director’ reports, Principal’s Award Committee report, Virginia Student Council Associations report and the Virginia Foundation for Educational Leadership (VFEL) report. For more information on VFEL, we have a newly launched website at www.vfel.org.
