Join NASBE this October for our  annual conference, this year centered on the theme: “Leaders Learning from Leaders.” Come to Denver, Colorado, and engage with dynamic speakers on such hot topics in education as new accountability models, student discipline policies, common core implementation, school leadership, and much more. Participate in working sessions and interactive tours with your colleagues and other education leaders. And, as always, learn from each other by sharing policymaking experiences across states. Check back frequently as we update our program, announce keynote speakers, and introduce important  pre-conference sessions.

Program Highlights:

  • Keynote with Aneesh Chopra, former White House Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder and Executive Vice President at Hunch Analytics
  • What’s in Store on Election Day and What Does It Mean for Education?” with Alex Bratty, Public Opinion Strategies & Jeffrey Plaut, Global Strategy Group
  • “State Boards and Local School Boards Working  Together” with  Thomas J. Gentzel, Executive Director, National School Boards Association & Kristen Amundson, Executive Director, National Association of State Boards of Education

NEW THIS YEAR! NASBE will be sponsoring a pre-conference session on student data privacy on Wednesday, October 15th, the day before our annual conference begins, from 2-5pm. It is aimed primarily at the legal community, but anyone who is interested in this topic is welcome to attend. The meeting will include sessions on federal and state student data privacy laws, how to recognize dangerous contract provisions that could violate the law or harm student privacy, and how to write a good privacy law or policy. Continuing Legal Education credit will be offered for Colorado. CLE credit will be applied for in other states if requested by attendees. This session will cost $25 for general attendees, and $100.00 for lawyers seeking CLE credit. 

When: October 16-18, 2014
Where: Denver, CO
