NSBA 2023 Annual Conference & Exposition - Save the Date

The NSBA 2023 Annual Conference and Exposition is the one national event that brings together education leaders to learn about best governance practices, gain insight into child development and learn about new programs and technology that can help enrich student learning. NSBA 2023 is one of the few—if not the only—places where school board members from around the country can receive the training necessary to address the instructional needs of students and to improve the efficiency of district operations.

    • It is strongly advised that presentations include at least one school board member as part of the panel of presenters.

    • Districts submitting proposals must be members in good standing of their respective state school boards association.

    • Please do not type any part of your proposal in all capital or lowercase letters, do not use acronyms or abbreviations, and please do not send any attachments or supplemental materials--they will not be reviewed.
