ASBA Summer Leadership Virtual Conference Series
June 3 @ 3:00 pm - June 17 @ 5:30 pm
Due to current events and out of respect for the health and safety of ASBA members and staff, our 2020 Summer Leadership Institute is being transitioned to the ASBA Summer Leadership Virtual Conference Series.
BUT… To thank you for your membership and honor the leadership of school board members and superintendents statewide, we will be bringing you a free, virtual conference experience.
Like you, we’ll miss the cool pines of Flagstaff, but we’re excited to offer you a “live stream” instead.
Join your colleagues from around Arizona for two live, interactive afternoons focused on the timely leadership topics Summer Leadership Institute is known for, presented by ASBA staff and some very special guests. And don’t worry, School Board Trivia will be included!
Sessions will be presented by ASBA staff and some very special guests. And don’t worry, the popular School Board Trivia will be included!
We’ll be live-streaming Part I of the Summer Leadership Virtual Conference Series on Wednesday, June 3, 3 – 5:30 p.m., and Part II on Wednesday, June 17, 3 – 5:30 p.m.
While the Virtual Conference will be free to all ASBA members, registration is required. CEUs and administrator certificates will be provided.
All attendees will be entered into a drawing for a free registration and a guaranteed reservation at Little America for the 2021 Summer Leadership Institute.
You will be sent the conference access link via email prior to the conference.
