School Business Affairs January 2019

8 JANUARY 2019 | SCHOOL BUSINESS AFFAIRS MEET THE 2019 ASBO INTERN S ince its inception, ASBO International has been a member-run, member-driven associa- tion governed by a board of directors. The ASBO International Board of Directors is composed of member volunteers who work tirelessly to lead our members, promote our mission, and uphold our professional standards. We would like to introduce the 2019 ASBO International Board of Directors by including not only their names and faces, but their perspectives on ASBO International and what it means to them and to the members. PRESIDENT Tom Wohlleber, CSRM Chief Financial Officer Casa Grande Elementary School District Casa Grande, Arizona My membership in ASBO International has impacted my professional career positively by support- ing my growth and success as a school business official and leader through exceptional professional development opportunities and resources. My ASBO International membership has also allowed me to significantly expand my network of school business colleagues and access to school business best practices from around the world. VICE PRESIDENT Claire Hertz, CSBA, SFO Deputy Superintendent of Business and Operations Portland Public Schools Portland, Oregon What I most value about ASBO International is connections with my peers to share learning from our experiences. I know I can post on the Global School Business Network and within 24 hours others will share what they know. ASBO International is a welcoming organization filled with experts in our field willing to send every model, RFP, or report they have ever created in hopes of helping a fellow business official. We are definitely in this work together. IMMEDIATE PAST PRESIDENT Charles E. Peterson, Jr., MBA, PRSBA, SFO Chief Financial Officer Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit #16 Milton, Pennsylvania One opportunity that I encourage all ASBO International members to take advantage of is to run for a board seat for your state affiliate and ASBO International. Anyone who has served in this capacity will tell you that the commitment is not as onerous as one might assume and the rewards far exceed the effort. It’s a rewarding experience.
