Pittsboro, NC - The North Carolina School Boards Association (NCSBA) recognized the Chatham County Board of Education during its Annual Conference for Board Member Development for having completed the first level of its Master Board training in 2010.

Master Board training emphasizes improved communication, team building, problem solving, and decision-making. Master Board status is awarded after a board completes five courses. Such boards are recognized with the presentation of a plaque at the association’s annual conference. Master Board I is achieved after five courses, and Master Board II is achieved after ten courses.

The board was recognized for each member having completed his or her twelve required NCSBA in-service hours for the year. Additionally, Board Chair Deb McManus and members David Hamm and Gary Leonard were recognized for cumulative hours of training during their time as board members.

McManus has also been selected to serve a two-year term on the North Carolina School Boards Association Board of Directors. The role of the Board of Directors includes determining the NCSBA position on legislation and the general positions and directions of the organization.

She has been involved in NCSBA activities throughout her time as a board of education member. McManus is preparing to begin her third four-year term on the Chatham school board, during which time she has served as vice-chair and chair. McManus is active in local, state, and federal politics as an advocate for educational issues. She has participated in the Federal Relations Networking Committee for many years and works closely with state and local elected officials on budgetary and specific educational issues.

“The Master Board training experience has been an invaluable experience for our Board and Superintendent Logan. We hope to also complete the second level of Master Board training. I am honored to serve on the NCSBA Board of Directors and believe it will be advantageous to Chatham County to have an active voice on the organization’s position on issues,” commented McManus.
