Founded by state school boards associations in late 2021, the Consortium of State School Boards Associations (COSSBA) is a non-partisan, national alliance dedicated to sharing resources and information to support, promote and strengthen state school boards associations as they serve their local school districts and board members.

Currently, COSSBA is governed by the Transition Steering Committee (TSC), which is comprised of the state executive from each founding member state and a seated member of each state association board. Each executive director/board member team is entitled to one vote on the TSC. On January 1, 2023, the first permanent board will be implemented and the TSC will terminate.
