Benefits of Membership

The Massachusetts Association of School Business Officials, Inc. is the professional association supporting business and financial operations in public schools throughout the Commonwealth. It is the privilege of our members to support the teaching and learning of students in municipal, regional, vocational/technical/agricultural, charter, and virtual schools and special education collaboratives.


  • Participation in four one-day professional development opportunities (in September, December, and February, and March) designed to deliver up-to-the-minute information on topics related to the profession. Collaboration and problem-solving are key to these opportunities. Programs might be in-person, hybrid, or virtual, depending on best delivery method at the time.
  • Participation in November’s MFAA/MASBO EXPO, a lively day of knowledge-sharing and professional development designed and executed in partnership with our Solution Providers. Not only are these product and service experts available to help problem-solve current needs in your district, they are eager to talk with you about the next generation of products and services that would help your district serve students and staff more efficiently and effectively. (Find out more about our Solution Providers in our Solutions Marketplace.)
  • Participation in the Law Institute (April), which focuses on best practices resulting from federal and/or state laws and regulations.
  • Participation in the Annual Institute (May), a multi-day conference providing professional development opportunities, featured speakers, networking opportunities, and our annual membership meeting. Held on beautiful Cape Cod, it's our way of coming together for an intensive shared experience designed to provide current and new members a variety of ways to share in learning, but also celebrate the success of our professionals, schools, and students.
  • Communities – an engagement space that allows members to ask questions, share ideas, and provide support to each other to improve and enhance their practice in service to their district. The space also contains a library where sample documents can be stored and referenced for the future, whenever a member chooses.
  • Recording of Professional Development Points (PDPs) in the interest of re-licensure for professionally licensed business professionals.
  • Receipt of the MASBO Notebook, weekly hyperlinked e-mails that include reminders of upcoming MASBO events, government information, sister association opportunities, hot topics in education in the state, and more.
  • Access to special business office staff trainings (paid separately) that support improvements in office operations.
  • Full access to the Members Only portion of the website, including presentation documents, best practice documents, and more.
  • Access to on-demand learning (free and fee-based) through our Learning Management System.
