Conference ‘Carousel of Panels’
event sponsor, and 30th panel announced

A total of 30 panel presentations will be offered in one room
over a one-hour and 30-minute time period at the Carousel.
A 30th panel discussion and an event sponsor were recently announced for this year’s Carousel of Panels on Saturday, Nov. 17 at the IASB, IASA, and Illinois ASBO Joint Annual Conference.

In addition to the panels previously listed, presenters from Eastern Illinois University and the Consortium for Educational Change will discuss The Reality of Rising: Supporting the Success of Diverse Leaders.

Thus a total of 30 presentations will be offered, all to be presented simultaneously in one room over a one-hour and 30-minute period. This means school board members, superintendents, and other Conference attendees can choose to participate in three different panels of 30 minutes each at the event. The Carousel of Panels will be presented from 1:45 to 3:15 p.m. in Sheraton 4 & 5, Ballroom Level IV, at the Sheraton Grand Hotel.

Beyond adding one more panel, IASB event organizers also can now boast of an event sponsor for the Carousel, thanks to the law firm of Hauser, Izzo, Petrarca, Gleason & Stillman, LLC.
