WHY I BELONG TO ASBO Our organization provides the unique opportunity to receive critical professional development for our industry that is available nowhere else. This recognizes and affirms that the quiet, "business" side of education is just as much of a calling or profession as the "teaching" side. It allows us rare opportunities to back away from the trees to see and reflect on the forest. ASBO is the single best forum, sounding board, professional coaching vehicle and microphone upon which we share challenges and successes with our peers to maximize the effectiveness of our efforts to support and improve results for our students and funding authorities. -Chris Hauge, School Facilities Engineer, Dorchester County Public Schools 6 *
