Board President: David H. Hill, Ed.D.

Each year at the Annual Conference I learn new things through networking with other school business officials and Service Associates. As a result of networking and thoughtful conversations with a fellow school business official, I recently changed my district's copy machine vendor. To date, the district has experienced improved service levels as well as reducing annual copy costs by more than $60,000.”
