Moreover, because of school business officials like you, we are transforming school finance in the Commonwealth of Virginia daily through operational efficiencies, cost savings and maximization of limited resources with the ultimate goal of continuously improving student learning opportunities. This is critical as we pave the way for the next generation because public education is the only option for most students. Therefore, the work of school business officials is important as it does indirectly    impact student achievement. As we begin to close out fiscal year 2018, continue to meet the challenges with perseverance, resilience and a positive attitude and excel despite fiscal and political obstacles. 

In closing, we would like to thank each of you for your support and dedication to VASBO. VASBO is here to assist you and serve you as you successfully perform your duties and responsibilities as a school business official.  You are truly our greatest asset today and tomorrow, and we could not accomplish what we do without your knowledge, leadership and volunteerism.

Each of you make VASBO so very proud. Therefore, our personal respect and thanks goes out to all of you and we look forward to seeing you at the 2018 VASBO Spring conference at the Inn in Virginia Tech on May 23 through May 25.


Best regards,


Steve Bateson
