...to serve the people responsible for public education, enabling them to perform effectively in their complex and challenging role.
...to speak with one voice to address issues of regional impact.
...to inform public school board members about contemporary issues affecting public education and the operation of public schools.

Boards from school districts in four BOCES (OCM, Cayuga-Onondaga, Oswego, and Tompkins-Seneca-Tioga) comprise our membership.
Our large regional area and our many school districts make us one of the largest school boards associations in New York State.
Five county school boards associations exist within CNYSBA: Oswego; Onondaga-Madison; Cayuga-Onondaga; Cortland-Madison; and the Tompkins-Seneca-Tioga School Boards Associations.
Each of these organizations selects three school board members to represent them on the Board of Directors of the CNYSBA. Directors serve three-year terms.
