Registration for Annual Conference in Sacramento is underway, and judging by how quickly our hotel room blocks are selling out, our return to the biggest event in California school business is proving to be a crowd-pleaser!

If you’ve already registered, we want to thank you for your faith in us as we transform from last year’s virtual event to our first in-person Annual Conference since 2019. And if you’ve yet to make your decision to join us, we’d like to explain why you won’t want to miss one minute of what we have in store for you when you attend this spring!

We have a lot of wonderful things sure to help you and your organization evolve. Take a look at our just-released program to get a full understanding of the dynamic learning and powerful voices you’ll experience this year:

  • Thought-provoking general sessions with presentations by emotional intelligence and peak performance expert JP Pawliw-Fry; 2019 National Superintendent of the Year Joe Sanfelippo, from Fall Creek School District in Wisconsin; and our panel of economic forecasting experts.
  • 150+ new and returning professional development sessions presented by recognized education experts, including our professional council lunches and partner-presented school business workshops.
  • 300+ exhibitors showcasing their products and solutions at California’s largest school business expo.
  • Your favorite creative networking and social events, including our associate-member-hosted hospitality suites and a new professionals mixer!

You’ll also benefit from another year of dedicated tradeshow hours at the expo. Held on Thursday afternoon when no workshops are in session, you’ll get two uninterrupted hours to check out all of the solutions our exhibitors have to offer.

As you can see, throughout this year’s conference, you’ll learn from state and national experts in their fields and have the opportunity to meet face to face with those in your professional and personal network.

And it’s all happening in Sacramento, where you’ll find hundreds of ways to return to your deep connections with colleagues and friends, continue the work of evolving education leadership in your local education agency, and unpack new ways to transform the work you do for California’s schools and the students you serve.

Our staff, member-leaders, committee and task force members, and partners and sponsors are working hard to provide you with a great conference that’ll showcase the grit and resilience we’ve demonstrated over the past two years. Meet us in Sacramento for all the learning and special moments that will take place when we gather face to face …

Register today*, and see how, after two years apart, we can shape the new face of education!
