VASBO And VAGP Partner for Conference Attendance

VASBO is proud to partner with the Virginia Association of Government Purchasing (VAGP) for reciprocal conference attendance this Spring.  VASBO Members will be allowed to register for the VAGP Conference & Expo at the VAGP Member rate, a savings of $100 off of their non-member rate.

 The Virginia Association of Governmental Purchasing represents more than 1,000 procurement professionals working in public entities in the Commonwealth of Virginia (state and local governments, educational institutions, special authorities, etc.).

 Conference details from VAGP can be found below and at at the following links:

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.

Greetings current and future VASBO Members!  It is truly a privilege to serve as VASBO’s President for the 2018-19 year, and I extend my sincere thanks to the membership for allowing me this honor.  The theme for this year is “Beacon to Success”.  A beacon, in this use, is defined as “a light, serving as a guide, especially at sea.”   I thought this was appropriate for the situation we are currently facing in our roles as School Business Officials – we are navigating waters that are sometimes smooth but may also, at times, be unfamiliar and/or troubled.  However, we all have a common destination – supporting a high-quality education for all of Virginia’s public school students.  As a group, we can collaborate to develop solutions and ideas to “light the path” for the future.
