“Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows.”
– Ben Stein
We are PSBA, the only association in Pennsylvania dedicated to school boards
The Pennsylvania School Boards Association is the statewide association for public school boards. Our access is to a core member audience of 4,500 elected school officials and 500 superintendents who together oversee the 500 school districts that comprise our state’s public education system.
In the 2017-18 school year, Pennsylvania’s school districts and the locally elected school board directors who govern them, were responsible for a bit more than $30.2 billion in budget oversight.
Who are these decision-makers that participate in the direction of more than $30 billion in budgetary determinations?
Each school director takes on an enormous responsibility that is driven by passion and commitment. They are unpaid officials who work not as individuals, but as a collective authority. They are lay leaders from every walk of life and every or any professional background, who have a strong commitment to the communities they serve and whose driving motivation is the best public education outcomes for the students of Pennsylvania. They are regularly faced with decisions about technology, construction, curricula, staffing, facilities, security, food services, systems and solutions, along with the ongoing operations of the district.
Now that you know a little about what drives our members, how do your company and your brand fit into this picture?
Your relationship with PSBA is a conduit to this complex audience that also includes our extended membership audience of career and technology centers, intermediate units and community colleges. We work with partners we believe can provide top solutions in services and products for our members and their districts. Our commitment to our members runs as deep as their commitment to public education and their communities. Our goal is to help our school boards be successful in leading their districts. This includes introducing them to brands with which we are comfortable being aligned — our Alliance Partners.
