District ‘Share the Success’ presentations sought for 2018 Conference

The 2017 Joint Annual Conference is a fresh memory, but it is not too early to begin thinking about the 2018 Conference. In fact, school districts and related education organizations are being invited now to submit their proposals (RFPs) for “Share the Success” panel presentations.

Success stories from local school districts and related organizations have long been a strong drawing card at the annual IASB/IASA/IASBO Conference. School board members and administrators from every division come to learn and benefit from the practical experiences “Share the Success” panel presentations provide.

Each year, a select number of districts and organizations are chosen to make presentations. These 60-minute panel sessions — presented by board members, administrators, and other school or community members who were involved in the particular programs to be showcased — are based on actual school system experiences. Presenters give insight and practical information on how to solve common problems. They share discoveries and innovations from programs succeeding in their school districts. They also provide tips on how school leaders can achieve such successes in their own districts.

Proposals for the 2018 Joint Annual Conference are due in the Springfield office by Friday, February 16, 2018.
