Membership in NEBSA is composed of representatives from K-12, post-secondary, and other education-related nonprofit entities, many of whom have operated EBS systems for a number of years.
NEBSA provides an expanded forum for the exchange of information and advice on new technologies, new educational applications, and commercial relationships for its members.
