About the Annual Conference
We hope you will join us for the 2017 WSSDA Annual Conference - the premier annual event for school directors and superintendents. It is the largest gathering of education policymakers in the state of Washington. Per WSSDA bylaws, the conference takes place on the east or west side of the Cascades in alternate years.
Lead Now for the Future: An introduction
The future begins just milliseconds from now. So every decision and action a board member takes affects the future – both immediate and distant. Some of the future is fairly predictable, most of it is unknown. So staying current with legislation, trends, what other districts are doing to excel – and more – will help you lead your district.
