Serving Educational Leaders, Inspiring Student Success

KASB members are unified school district boards, community college boards of trustees, area vocational-technical college boards and boards of cooperatives, interlocals and regional service centers. Vendors, exhibitors and other service providers can also become members. Currently the association represents 292 school districts and 39 cooperatives, service centers, community colleges and technical colleges. Another 21 service associate members and four associate members (former boards of education members) are also affiliated with KASB. In all, the association includes close to 3,500 members.

Services supported by dues include those of general interest to the entire membership, including advocacy, lobbying, research, communications and association publications and and information on special topics. KASB charges a separate fee for services that members use selectively, such as the annual convention, seminars, workshops and special interest publications and training materials.

KASB has three membership levels: Full Membership, Associate Membership and Service Associate Member. To join, contact the KASB Bookkeeping department at 800.432.2471 or email Sheryl Fincham
