Many changes are underway in education. State government has launched aggressive reforms that will change the way people think about public education. Soon, the education community will start a new conversation about how to bolster the public’s investment in schools. This year’s Summer Board Conference features workshops, events and speakers that keep you informed and prepare you to help lead that conversation.

You are among those who must lead the change to ensure that your community’s public education program prepares students for life and work in the global community. Educational experts and OSBA staff members are ready to help you discover your strengths, build on shared knowledge, learn new information and craft exceptional solutions.
