Anthony B. Harduar recently became the president-elect of the National Association of Elementary School Principals.

Mr. Harduar, 52, the principal of the 330-student Central Elementary School in Ferndale, Wash., will assume the presidency of the NAESP next July. Before becoming a principal in 1983, Mr. Harduar taught elementary school and served as an assistant principal in Anchorage, Alaska.

The Alexandria, Va.-based NAESP, which has nearly 30,000 members nationwide, provides support and advocacy for elementary- and middle-level principals.

Alma A. Allen, a retired Houston public schools administrator and current member of the Texas state board of education, has been elected the president of the National Association of State Boards of Education.

Ms. Allen will begin her one-year term on Jan. 1, succeeding Betty Preston, a member of the Missouri state board of education.

The Alexandria, Va.-based NASBE represents nearly 700 members serving on or working for state boards of education in 42 states and U.S. territories.

The Association of School Business Officials International has hired Anne W. Miller to be its executive director.

Ms. Miller, who began her job at the Reston, Va.-based association last month, was previously the executive director of the National Association of Secondary School Principals’ Trust to Reach Education and Excellence, a foundation that promotes equity in student achievement for disadvantaged youths.

The 6,000-member ASBO is a professional association that provides programs and services to promote the effective use of school business-management practices.
