At CASBO we’re always listening to our members to better understand their needs in school business and beyond, then working to meet those needs. Over the course of the pandemic, we heard your call for a virtual space to meet with your colleagues to network, vent, share your experiences and gain insight into your profession from another angle, so we launched the first of our Professional Roundtables.

The CBO Morning Roundtable is a complimentary forum that quickly became a popular spot for CBOs and other leaders to bounce ideas around, get another perspective, or simply shoot the breeze about the everyday aspects of leading a successful local education agency.

We followed that up with a highly sought-after topic: the Women in Leadership Morning Roundtable. Co-hosted by CASBO member and Northern Section President-Elect Lisa Gonzalez, Ed.D and CASBO CEO Tatia Davenport, this monthly forum presents a series of women leaders from across the business world, including a recent session with Terilyn Finders, Director of Communications at Fagen Friedman & Fulfrost LLP on effective board presentations. If you missed that particular event, we encourage you to watch the recording. All are welcome in this complimentary forum where anyone can participate in an open line of communication — this is an inclusive space for anyone interested in becoming a true ally for their teammates in a leadership role!

CASBO Professional Councils (PCs) are now looking to the future and preparing several new roundtable topics for our members, including Accounting, Financial Services, and Human Resources. Watch your inbox for these sessions to be launched over the summer and bring your insight and inquiries. When we offer our expertise and open ourselves to new ideas, we can be sure we’re doing our best for schools and school business in California.


These upcoming discipline specific venues will be open to all employees of current CASBO Organizational Subscribers. Not currently a CASBO subscriber? We encourage you to join or renew today to gain access to these forums and a host of additional benefits.
