Our Story


Our Story

NSBMA believes that preparing students to serve on school boards is fundamental to successful and effective student board members. Understanding board budgets, operating within Roberts Rule of Order, and evaluating plans to raise test scores are complicated but essential aspects of governance . We believe that when student board members understand education policy, they are best equipped to represent students and strengthen the entire school board.

Founded in 2023, the National Student Board Member Association (NSBMA) is empowering and elevating students who serve on boards of education and similar bodies across the United States. NSBMA is the first association built by and for Student Board Members (SBMs).


Students are the primary recipients of the educational process and we believe that their input plays a critical role in building better school systems across the country. Our aim is to break down barriers to students representing their peers and making positive change during their tenures.


With our focus on intergenerational collaboration, we are constructing transformative trainings, reliable resources, and nation-wide networks so these unique young leaders can hone their skills and achieve success.
