Virginia Association of School Business Officials

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.




Dear Friends,


Together with my colleagues, I wish for you a very happy, healthy and successful academic year!

 I am humbled, honored and privileged to have been elected President of the Virginia Association of School Business Officials. I am deeply grateful to my predecessors, their leadership and outstanding contributions to VASBO.  I look forward to continuing the collaborative efforts with the Board of Directors and Management Team.  Their inspiration and commitment to VASBO cannot go on unrecognized.  The growth of VASBO has been an effort of unprecedented proportions by this group of exemplary leaders known collectively as School Business Officials of VASBO. 

 I look forward working with our members on this collective effort that promotes the highest standards of school business practices and professionalism throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.  With their continued support we will continue this work through partnering with professional organizations, government agencies and school communities.

 I am proud to be given this opportunity, and with the Board of Directors, continue the leadership of VASBO as an authority in school business and operations in a transparent, professional and ethical manner.
