Board Members

SASSLA engages a private voting company to conduct a yearly election of Board Members. Nominations are sent to all members in November of each year via the voting company. After nominations are received a postal ballot is forwarded to all members in February of each year. Members are elected for a two-year term, with four members being elected one year and five members being elected the next year. This arrangement ensures continuity of Board Members each year.

Testimonials

SASSLA
SASSLA is the sounding board school leaders need.  It is unfortunate that principals and other leaders need this type of protection but when needed it is efficient, supportive and acted on in a timely manner.  SASSLA provides a highly confidential service through email, phone conversations or site visits.  This organisation provides independent legal advice for a group of educators who experience common issues and are open to litigation.
