REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

Online registration

Charter schools- please read the following before registering for OSBA’s Summer Board Conference:

As you may have heard, OSBA’s tax status is changing as of July 1, 2018 (see FAQ linked below for details). Under the new designation, OSBA can no longer accept dues and/or service fees from charter schools because they are not recognized as political subdivisions of the state as defined under federal tax code.Therefore, beginning July 1, 2018, charter schools will no longer be able to be associate members or contract directly with OSBA for services.

To access OSBA services, which includes conferences and events, charter schools are now required to submit a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) acknowledging that their sponsoring district has a process in place that provides access to OSBA services. This new requirement begins on July 1, 2018, which means OSBA needs to have your fully executed MOU on file prior to the conference (see sample MOU linked below), or we will not be able to honor your registration. Please mail the completed MOU to the address below, attention Vicky Black, or email vblack@osba.org.  

Please contact Kristen Miles with any questions at kmiles@osba.org.
