From left to right: Jesus Rubalcava, Elaine Hall, Kathy Knecht, Julie Bacon and Torri Anderson.

Kathy Knecht, a member of the Peoria USD governing board and 2014 ASBA treasurer, was voted as president-elect; Julie Bacon, a member of the Paradise Valley USD governing board and 2014 secretary, was chosen treasurer; and Torri Anderson, a member of the Maricopa USD governing board, was elected secretary.

The new officers join Jesus Rubalcava, a member of the Gila Bend USD governing board, who advances from 2014 president-elect to 2015 president, and Elaine Hall, a member of the Sahuarita USD governing board, who moves from 2014 president to 2015 immediate past president.

The ASBA Board of Directors comprises this five-member executive committee of currently serving school board members, as well as one currently serving school board member from each county in the state (county directors), with the exception of Maricopa and Pima counties, which have two county directors each due to their much larger populations.

County directors are typically elected by peers from their own county; appointments are made when mid-term vacancies occur.

Also represented with seats on the board are ASBA’s Black and Hispanic-Native American Indian caucuses, and any Arizona school board member who serves on the board of the National School Boards Association, of which ASBA is a federation member.
