Annual Conference Registration

Annual Conference goes virtual

WSSDA’s Annual Conference has been reimagined and relaunched for 2020 as a virtual event. For the first time, full access to the entire conference is available anywhere you want it. Join from the comfort of your home or gather with your board to learn together.

If you have already registered for the conference, there is nothing else you need to do. Your registration will be converted to all-virtual attendance.

Pre-conference

Attend our three outstanding pre-conference sessions to kick off your learning. For newer board members, you may want to attend Board Boot Camp. For those who wish to dig into important issues in education law or equity, you can join the Law Conference or the Leading for Equity workshop. In order to prepare instructional materials, pre-conference workshops require registration by OCTOBER 30, 2020.
