NASSP Bylaws

After many months of close study, consultation, and thoughtful deliberation, the NASSP Board of Directors is pleased to announce a progressive change to NASSP’s bylaws. This more inclusive model will open service opportunities to all NASSP members, providing ways for them to contribute to NASSP’s governance, engage with NASSP, and work to advance the field of school leadership. Further, it will allow the NASSP Board of Directors to intentionally reflect the diversity of the principal population and to acquire the specific skills or experience the organization might need at any point in time. This two-minute video explains the new structure:

The board of directors formed the Bylaws Review Advisory Committee in 2017 to recommend how NASSP governance could best be structured to ensure NASSP thrives well into its second century, as well as reflect the diverse perspectives and dynamic skill sets of its members. Following extensive discussion, the NASSP Board of Directors voted in March 2020 to accept a series of recommendations from the Bylaws Review Advisory Committee to restructure the board and reinvent the way board members are selected.
