ASBA-ASA 61ST ANNUAL CONFERENCE

ASBA’s Annual Conference will be held December 12-14, 2018. The Annual Conference is our celebratory end-of-year gathering of school board members and other district leaders in the state. Attendees hear from national speakers, focus on statewide education initiatives and network and share experiences with other educational leaders across Arizona. School board members, students and educators are celebrated during the Annual Awards program and the Golden Bell Luncheon.

HOTEL UPDATE: We have been made aware of an incident that occurred at the Biltmore involving a guest complaint in May 2018. The incident was immediately contained and resolved.
