WSSDA Annual Conference goes Virtual

WSSDA has taken to heart the 2020 Annual Conference theme by reflecting, reimagining and relaunching the conference itself. For the first time, the WSSDA Annual Conference will be a fully-virtual event.

While we will all miss the irreplaceable experience of meeting, learning and engaging together in-person, WSSDA is still bringing you the content and interactions you love in the virtual setting.

All you know and love about Annual Conference is back


To kick off your learning, you can attend three outstanding pre-conference sessions: Board Boot Camp, Law Conference, and the Leading for Equity workshop.


For those looking to unlock the mysteries of education funding and budgeting, WSSDA OnBoard is back. With interactive learning experiences, OnBoard will help you deepen your understanding and connect you with fellow board members.

Keynote speakers, student talent and breakout sessions

And as usual, you’ll enjoy powerful, top-notch keynote speakers, inspirational student talent and interactive breakout sessions. This year you can look forward to hearing from Washington Superintendent of Public Instruction, Chris Reykdal; award-winning author, Ijeoma Oluo; WSSDA’s Executive Director, Tim Garchow; and many more.

Haven’t attended before? This year it’s easier than ever!

No travel or lodging required

If you’ve never attended Annual Conference, there is no time like the present. With no travel or lodging concerns, this year’s conference is accessible for all to attend.

Great platform with a flexible agenda

We sought a platform that would mimic, as best as possible, the feeling of being on-site at a face-to-face conference. The conference agenda is designed to optimize virtual delivery effectiveness while providing breaks and flexibility to suit attendees’ needs.

Expanded access to content

Most of the breakout sessions will be accessible post-conference through July of 2021. During the live event, there are eight opportunities to attend breakout sessions, but after that, registrants will have access to all recorded breakout sessions on-demand, which can serve as year-round professional development for you and your board-superintendent team.
