Board of Directors

Michelle Corkadel, 2023-2024 MABE President
Michelle Corkadel, 2023-2024 MABE President


The board of directors is comprised of the officers of the association, the immediate past president, and twelve additional members. All must be current members of their local boards of education. The immediate past president may serve an additional year on the board of directors as an ex-officio, non-voting member.

Their local boards may nominate members. The nominating committee, comprised of local board members, submits a slate of officers and members at the annual business meeting, and the slate is voted upon by the membership. The officers and members serve a one year term beginning the day after the election. The board schedules five meetings a year in addition to an annual retreat.

Should there become a vacancy in the presidency, the president-elect assumes the presidency. Vacancies among other officers or board of directors members are filled by appointment of the president with the board of directors' approval.
