SupportCon South Registration
still open for education support staff

Registration for SupportCon South (previously known as the Educational Support Professionals Conference) is still open for school support staff looking to further develop their skills in today’s constantly changing educational environment. The September 21 event will take place at the Bloomington-Normal Marriot Hotel and Conference Center beginning at 8 a.m.

SupportCon South kicks off with General Session speaker Mary Byers' “Unlock the Power of Questionology” presentation that focuses on the influence of asking the right questions. A full day of professional development opportunities for educational support staff will also offer four morning and four afternoon hour-long breakout sessions.

IASB, the Illinois Association of School Business Officials (Illinois ASBO), and the Illinois Association of School Administrators developed the programming to specifically cater to the range of work performed by support professionals. Speakers from all three associations, as well as legal and financial experts, will be on hand to answer questions and guide discussion.

Registration for the event is available at the Illinois ASBO website.
