Board Basics & Beyond

The AAVSB's Board Basics & Beyond is an interactive training session designed to provide comprehensive training on being a regulatory board member, executive, or staff member.

Next Session

Our most recent gathering in May 2017 was a success! The next training is scheduled for April 20-21, 2018 in Kansas City, Missouri. Be sure to follow the AAVSB on social media, such as Facebook and Twitter to be the first to know when registration opens!


Registration will open January 8, 2018.
