Manitoba Organization: Manitoba Association of School Trustees / Manitoba School Boards Association
The Manitoba School Trustees Association was established as a result of an organizational meeting held at Brandon on 3-5 April 1907. Initially, it was known as the Department of School Administration of the Manitoba Educational Association and changed its name the following year to the School Trustee’s Department.
It was incorporated as the Manitoba School Trustees Association in 1943. It divided into separate urban and rural associations in 1959 (called the Urban School Trustees Association and Manitoba School Trustees Association, respectively) but the two entities re-merged in 1965, becoming the Manitoba Association of School Trustees. It was renamed the Manitoba School Boards Association in 1990.
