London Plus Association of School Business Managemers (LPASBM)

London Plus Association of School Business Managemers (LPASBM) was established to support practitioners working within a school business management environment, irrespective of whether they are a SBM, a Bursar, a Finance Director etc.  It is open to practitioners working in London and the Home Counties within a school business management related role whether in a school or academy, a MAT or a free school.

The purpose of the group is to foster development and collaboration through events and communication.  LPASBM is currently run by a committee of SBM practitioners.  We hold three events per year in Central London, with topics that are chosen by the committee and at the recommendation of the wider SBM network.  We aim to provide the support and development that practitioners need and want.

The committee members include fellow members of NASBM as well as a NASBM Associate Practitioner.

We are keen for LPASBM members to work together and to use this platform to communicate and discuss burning issues.
