The National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE) is pleased to announce the launch of its exclusive Mobile Application for members and other constituents to help them connect with NASBE anytime, anywhere. A non-profit organization founded in 1958, NASBE exists to serve and strengthen State Boards of Education in their pursuit of high levels of academic achievement for all students. NASBE serves as a rich source of information for its members, producing original, timely information on education’s most pressing issues. The information includes education research and analysis, federal legislative updates, tips on effective policy making, coverage of education reform efforts across the nation, and other vital resource documents.
Available on the iTunes app store for iPhones and iPads and on the Google Play store for Droids (just search “NASBE”), the NASBE app will be the most convenient hub for NASBE members to access all the latest information and news on the go along with conference and event related information.
NASBE partnered with Crescerance, a leader in School Mobile Communications to build its custom application. Crescerance is also a proud sponsor of NASBE’s 2013 Annual Conference, which is to be held between July 28 and 30, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.
“NASBE’s annual conference is the singular destination for education policymakers every year. This new app will enhance the conference experience for all who attend and keep those who cannot make it on top of the action. It is a great service for our members as greater numbers of them adopt high-performing mobile technology,” says NASBE Executive Director, Kristen Amundson.
