Igniting Great Ideas Summit

June 19, 2020

Registration: $99 per person

MSBA’s Igniting Great Ideas Summit has been changed to a virtual format in light of concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. The virtual Igniting Great Ideas Summit will be conducted online and will feature interactive presentations and panel discussions. The material will be related to issues that your school district faces as you implement creative ways to provide education to students and look forward to the possibility of school buildings reopening for the next school year.

The Delegate Assembly will also occur virtually. Delegates will be voting on statewide officers for the coming year as well as a proposed change to MSBA’s purpose statement. Video interviews with the candidates for state office are posted on the MSBA website. Be sure your school board is represented at the virtual Delegate Assembly.

CBM credits will be awarded with documentation of participation. Don’t miss this exciting new learning opportunity!
