ASBO International Conference Registration Scholarships

At last week's Spring Conference, the VASBO Membership approved a scholarship opportunity that is open to all current VASBO Members!  This is an opportunity for twenty VASBO Members to receive $500 scholarships to help cover the registration costs for attending the ASBO Annual Meeting & Expo, which is scheduled for October 25 - 28, 2019 in National Harbor, Maryland. Two (2) scholarships will be awarded per Region in addition to 4 At-Large scholarships.  A link to more information on the Annual Meeting & Expo is provided below.  In addition to the details on their website, VASBO and MD/DC ASBO are joining forces to host a "Taste of the Chesapeake" hospitality event!  

You must complete the  google form by Friday, May 17th @ 5pm. Scholarship recipients will be randomly selected (each School Division may only receive one scholarship) and notification will be provided by Friday, May 24th. Once selected, recipients will be required to submit documentation of registration in order to receive the scholar ship funds.  

This is a high-quality professional development and networking event that you don't want to miss, especially since it is so close to us! 

If you have any questions, please contact Steve Bateson, Executive Director, at [email protected] or 804-512-5443.

2019 SFO Study Group Opportunity

The SFO certification is the only nationally recognized certification for the school business profession. VASBO currently has 27 active SFO’s (we more than doubled the number of certificants last year), and our goal is to continue to increase this number annually.

Consistent with the goal of assisting school business officials to be effective in their roles, Horace Mann made the exciting announcement at the Fall Conference that they are once again sponsoring $5,000 worth of scholarships to assist with the cost of the SFO exam fees. Ten $500 scholarships will be awarded and announced at the Joint VASS/VASBO Winter Conference on Monday, January 7, 2019. These funds will be used to cover the cost of the SFO exam for the scholarship recipients.
