At any time, the ASBA is represented on approximately 80 external committees.
These committees are established by a variety of sponsoring agencies or organizations. Several of these committees advise Alberta Education as provincial educational policy is developed in areas such as curriculum, student evaluation practices, teacher certification requirements and practices, governance policies and finance plans. Departments of government other than Alberta Education, such as Alberta Infrastructure, also seek our advice through advisory committees. Other committees provide input to post secondary institutions, especially as their work relates to teacher training. Yet other committees provide input to stakeholder organizations such as the Alberta Teachers’ Association.
ASBA’s appointment criteria and processes are guided by ASBA Board Governance Policy 9 Board of Directors Representatives to External Committees.
