Virginia Association of School Business Officials


Dear VASBO Members, Sponsors, and Friends,

It is an honor to serve as the VASBO president for 2022-2023. I am supremely humbled. As we face the challenges derived from a global pandemic, historic staffing challenges in schools, a reckoning around race and equity, increasing socioeconomic disparities, and the ebbs and flows of funding to our divisions, our work is increasingly important. My hope this year is that you are able to find some Joy in the Chaos as you work through each day, knowing that your purpose is worth the challenges. 

We have exciting conference and networking plans in place for the year that we hope you will find worthwhile. The Fall networking event with your Regional groups will not only provide relevant information to you but it will also provide time to talk with colleagues who face the same issues you do. The Winter conference is always a rich resource for preparing for budget season when we meet in Richmond with our Superintendent’s, and the Spring conference this year will be in Williamsburg at the Lodge, an old favorite for sure. The facility is wonderful and there will be many learning opportunities for the choosing.

We have rode the wave of change, and navigated it for sure, and now it is time to breathe and try to find the Joy in the Chaos that we face each day, so that we can enjoy our jobs, even if it’s just a small amount more than normal.

With the support of the Executive & Management Teams, as well as our Executive Director, I will strive this year to increase the value of the VASBO membership for you. We look forward to seeing you all at our conferences!


Mandy C. Hall

VASBO President
