Conference Circuit: Learning Leaders

The 2018 AASA National Conference on Education begins in Nashville next week. School superintendents from across the country will be in attendance.

School system leaders from diverse communities nationwide are headed to Nashville in the coming days to network with colleagues, become inspired by the great things happening in U.S. schools, and discuss critical topics in education.

Organization: AASA, The School Superintendents Association

Conference: 2018 AASA National Conference on Education

Venue: Music City Center

City: Nashville, Tennessee

Following thought leader and roundtable sessions on Thursday morning and afternoon, NCE 2018 opens that evening with its welcome reception and first general session.  Doris Kearns Goodwin, presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, will discuss the individual and universal qualities that have made American presidents great and will continue to inspire leaders well into the future. Also on the agenda:

Read all about it. AASA’s conference e-newsletter, Conference Daily Online, provides stories about key speakers and topical sessions, as well as photos and video clips. To help with coverage, four AASA members will be blogging each day about their experiences at the conference.

Get social. For the third year, the meeting will feature a Social Media Lounge. Attendees can get on-the-spot, hands-on assistance with the latest social media tools, as well as learn from education leaders who are embracing and dominating various platforms. Also included: a live-streaming video corner and selfie wall.

Share the love. During the I Love Public Education rally, educators, policymakers, business leaders, media, and parents will speak out about the important roles schools play to lead, shape, and grow a community. AASA’s CEO, the mayor of Nashville, and Metro Nashville Public Schools’ superintendent will lead the rally.

Head to Twitter (#NCE18) and Facebook to follow all the onsite action.
