continent for over thirty years working with school educators in thousands of schools. Phil is the creator of programs such as Link Crew, WEB, and Breaking Down the Walls and wrote the book “School Culture By Design.” Be ready for an action packed and exciting message.

Wes Smith, Executive Director, ACSA 

Dr. Wesley Smith is executive director of the Association of California School Administrators, the largest school leadership group in the nation. ACSA is foremost a champion for the state’s more than 6 million students. Having served in a variety of school leadership roles, including elementary and middle grades principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent, Dr. Smith understands the intricacies and influences in public education. He believes in a bold new future for ACSA and ensuring it is the most influential voice in public education for years to come. Changes in the standards taught and tested in California, a new school funding formula and the redesign of education accountability systems will require ACSA leadership. Dr. Smith is uniquely poised to lead that charge to protect the present and the future of all students
