The 2023 Student Trustee Action Readiness Training Conference
The START Process
NSBMA’s START Conference aims to train the nation’s incoming student board members in preparation for a term of service and dedication to a sole student constituency. The START process utilizes both informational and experiential education to train student trustees on board service.
The National Student Board Member Association (NSBMA) works to connect, support, and educate student school board members and other educational stakeholders to strengthen student representation in education decision-making. The National Student Board Member Association believes that meaningful representation of student voice is vital to ensure the education system prepares all students to thrive.

Student Voice, Student Power
"I have been an advocate for education since middle school. Although I have the word ‘student’ in front of my position, I am an equal board member in voice, vote and value. I hope to be judged by the integrity of my thoughts and actions, not my youth."
