New Optional School District
Organizational Membership/Conference Plan (SDOP)
The Colorado Association of School Business Officials (Colorado ASBO), is initiating a New Optional School District Organizational Membership/Conference Plan (SDOP) that will save your District significant dollars. One of the features of this plan pertains to School Districts with 600 or less students. These districts can least afford time or money to avail their staff to professional development. Colorado ASBO will make their conference attendance free as long as they have a paid membership.
The SDOP retains the individual memberships in the control of the school district and affords you flexibility to change them in the plan year, i.e., you can, if you want, send one group to the spring conference and a different group to the fall conference. The School District Contact Designee will determine the individual members and any changes made in the plan year. Additional Spring or Fall conference registrations than the included number in your plan will be at the conference membership rate (they must be one of the named individual members in the plan)
This School District Organizational Membership/Conference Plan (SDOP) is available on a calendar year basis beginning January 1, 2019. Please refer to the attachment for more information. If you are interested in enrolling or want additional information please use this Contact CASBO form and we will get back to you promptly.
The upcoming 66th Annual Spring Conference is a great networking and professional development opportunity for business and operations departments within your school district as it brings together education stakeholders and contributors from around the state and beyond. Overall, ColoradoASBO is a great opportunity for all business officials and operations teams across districts and can provide a great value to your school district. We strive to have all Colorado school districts represented at our conference and that is why we invite you to take part in this School District Organizational Membership/Conference Plan (SDOP). We are looking forward to seeing you at the 66th Annual Conference.
