General Board Information

While there are some meetings, most duties of board members are accomplished using technology -- telephone, e-mail, or webinars. All Governing Board members are expected to participate in three ISCA Board meetings held on Saturdays usually in January, April and September, the annual conference in November in Des Moines, and the Summer Leadership Development Institute (LDI) usually held for two days in July (location to be determined). Board members may also be asked to represent ISCA at state or regional meetings, professional development, and other professional activities. Members of the Governing Board do not receive any financial compensation for their service.  However, they are reimbursed for travel expenses and other costs. All Governing Board members are expected to pay for their ISCA conference registration, travel, and hotel. Those who have been involved in the ISCA Board have recognized many benefits of this leadership experience that include networking, learning about school counseling issues and strategies to advocate for the profession and for school counseling issues, collegiality, and professional and personal development.
