We are stepping out from our usual conference format and trying a new innovative approach this year, which coincides with our theme of “Innovation in Motion” or I2M.  This year’s conference starts off on Friday with presentations from #CUE presenters extraordinaire Pam Hernandez, and Jessica Gomez. They both will be rocking it on Friday and Saturday.





Travis Allen, #IschoolInitiative, will further launch us into our #innovative quest on Friday night with an amazing, thoughtful presentation, that will get your mind planning to also “Escape the ACSA Conference” on Saturday. Our goal is to have 100% attendee participation in one of the three Escape the Conference Event opportunities that will all be on Saturday! Prepare to participate, engage, have a bunch of fun, and keep a smile on your face!

The Saturday skill development sessions are intended to be #interactive, #collaborative and #engaging. Additionally, Beth Houf, Co-author of Lead Like a Pirate will be presenting a workshop on Saturday, in addition to providing the closing keynote on Sunday!

This simply is a can’t miss Professional Development weekend that is sure to prove to bring you #innovation #engagement and #creativity opportunities for you and your team! Don’t miss out!
