ASBA’s Annual Conference will be held December 2-4, 2020. 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.

Request for proposals now open to present at Annual Conference, Dec. 3-4, 2020

There are many ways school boards can support each other through the sharing of promising practices and creative solutions to common challenges. Annual Conference provides an opportunity for school leaders to share what is working in their districts and learn from others who have successfully implemented results-based solutions.

This year we are seeking submissions for breakout sessions in the following theme areas:

A. Social Emotional: Meeting the social/emotional needs of students.

B. Innovative Solutions: Effective solutions that have improved communications, facilities, food services, human resources, etc.

C. Closing the Gap: Strategies to close the opportunity and achievement gaps.

D. Inclusive Schools: Creating inclusive and welcoming schools for all students and families.

E. Rural and Remote Schools: Strategies to address the challenges of rural and/or remote school districts.

Submissions are now open and close Friday, Aug. 3. ASBA will conduct a first review and notify semi-finalists no later than Aug. 17, 2020. If selected as a semi-finalist, you will be asked to provide additional details on your presentation which will assist ASBA in making final selections.
