2017 marks the 100th year of service for KASB
Through each decade, our Association has adapted to serve the needs of a diverse membership.
Many of the changes throughout the years were in response to changes in public education and the changing role of boards of education and leadership teams.
We are celebrating both our past and our future! Our theme “Understanding our Past, Imagining our Future” perfectly frames the story we want to share.

The forerunner of what would become the Kansas Association of School Boards was established by the Board of Education Department of the Kansas State Teachers Organization. In the early years, the only record of activity was an annual meeting. This was usually held in Pelletier’s Hall in Topeka, Kansas. The organization functioned as a voluntary organization under lay leadership.
W.P. Lambertson from Fairway, Kansas served as president.
