The staff surveys must be completed as well by Friday, August 19 with results to be compiled, summarized, and presented by NCSBA at the board meeting on August 29.

Such statements should be submitted directly to NCSBA via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Such statements should be received no later than Friday, August 19.
