School Board of Manatee County board member Dave Miner was elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Florida School Boards Association during the FSBA’s Annual Summer Conference last week in Tampa.
Miner, who will serve a two-year term, was first elected to the board in 2013. He will represent District 15, which contains Manatee, DeSoto and Hardee counties.
The Board of Directors has five executive officers, 27 directors representing geographical districts in the state, and FSBA members who serve as an officer or member of the Board of Directors of the National School Boards Association or the Southern Region School Boards Association.
“The benefit is that (Manatee, DeSoto and Hardee) have a voice in helping to shape policies for the FSBA and receive information with what is happening in education reforms legislatively and professionally,” Miner said. “I’m the ears and voice for the districts on that.”
The FSBA is a non-profit that advocates for elected school boards across the state and provides training to board members.
