WSSDA is seeking proposals for breakout sessions at the 2022 Annual Conference. Could you be a presenter?
About you: You’re mindful, aware, and willing to share strategies that support district or school board leadership and student success. Your mind seeks discussion and shared solutions for thorny education issues. You’re keen to support peers to do things like help their community deepen their understanding about a topic ; influence the development of legislation; or establish practices and programs that promote positive outcomes or a sense of belonging for all students.
You are available to be in Spokane Washington on one or more days between, Wednesday, November 16 – Saturday November 19, 2022 for the largest gathering of K-12 education leaders in the state (See the draft agenda)
About your audience: Most attendees are school board members, plus student board representatives, district superintendents, and other educators and state leaders dedicated to the educational needs of Washington’s children.
About the conference host: WSSDA is non-partisan. Every public school board member in the state is automatically eligible to receive the services and supports WSSDA provides. Those supports include policy and legal resources, legislative advocacy, and professional development. Presentations at annual conference may touch on all three of those areas.
About the event: Located in the beautiful Spokane, Washington Convention Center, this 3-day event is familiar to returning members, as our annual conference annually toggles between the eastern and western sides of the state. Newer school directors can look forward to making several new personal connections while combining their previous experience with learning from peers.
If any of the above speaks to you, consider submitting a breakout session proposal to extend your voice, and share thoughtful reflections on topics likely encountered by school directors around the state.
