Applications for Membership for New Members or Renewing Members will be available in early October once registration opens for this year's
TASBO Conference

The membership year is from November 1 of one year to October 31 of the succeeding year. Dues are currently $50.00.  Contact Maryanne Durski if you have questions regarding membership.

Tennessee Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) is the premier school business professional organization in Tennessee.  Our annual conference in November is the largest gathering of public-school business officials in the state.  During the conference, members can take part in high quality professional development and network with decision makers such as CFOs, payroll accountants, accounts payable staff, and business officials in the areas of human resources, operations, transportation, food service, etc. Other networking opportunities are available with our business partners from across the state and nation who choose to exhibit and/or sponsor.

Another benefit of TASBO membership comes from our affiliation with the Southeastern Association of School Business Officials (SASBO).  TASBO members are also members of SASBO and eligible for certification programs and training opportunities.
