The Board of Directors is composed of five executive officers (The Executive Committee), twenty-four directors representing geographical districts in the state, and FSBA members who serve as officers or on the Board of Directors of the National School Boards Association or the Southern Region School Boards Association. Directors from the geographical districts serve two-year staggered terms.
