See You In-Person

This year, the conference will be offered in-person only. Annual Conference offers a once-a-year opportunity to connect with, learn from and be inspired by other school directors and education leaders from around the state that is simply irreplaceable. 

WSSDA offers a variety of other events virtually and in hybrid fashion, including Spring Regional Meetings, the weekly networking call on Thursdays, and General Assembly in September.

The Value of This Event

WSSDA’s annual conference is the premier annual event for school directors, student board representatives, and superintendents. As the largest gathering of education policymakers in the state, it creates a unique opportunity for school directors to spend several days learning from peers and other educational experts, and for board-superintendent teams to strengthen their own connections.

Key Dates

Conference registration opens June 1, 2022.

Call for Proposals open April 13 – May 27. Don’t miss this opportunity to share with your colleagues through a breakout session within the six strands that encompass the most important work of school boards, plus there is a category for sponsored sessions that include a vendor. Use them as a framework to think about topics in which other boards would benefit from your experiences.
