The Value of Membership

"I could not have survived 30 years in school business without the support I've received from ASBO. No matter how much you may think your problem is unique, it's not. I've always found support from colleagues facing the same issues no matter where they work, and I've shared solutions. We have a lot to learn from one another, so I value my memberships in Tri-State ASBO, New Hampshire ASBO, Vermont ASBO, and ASBO International."

Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting

The Gold Standard in Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports

For more than 45 years, the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting (COE) has honored school districts for their high quality Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs).
