Show support for a legislative initiative by getting involved in the advocacy process at the local level. When statewide action is needed, MSBA will develop a model resolution for school districts to consider regarding a speciﬁc legislative initiative. Once passed, submit the resolution to MSBA’s Government Relations Team, and they will communicate your support with key members of the legislature.
Create awareness of local issues by helping develop MSBA Legislative Policy. Elected oﬃcials often ask for MSBA’s Policies to see where school board members stand on legislative issues. Become part of the policy development process by authoring and submitting a resolution for consideration at the MSBA Delegate Assembly. If adopted at the Delegate Assembly, your resolution would become an oﬃcial MSBA Legislative Policy.
