More than 1,200 Washington State public school leaders will gather at the WSSDA Annual Conference to share ideas and discuss strategies to improve public education in Washington. This is the largest annual gathering of both school board members and superintendents in the state. Superintendents oversee most major purchases, approve contracts and select products and vendors. As a sponsor, you can meet and build relationships with these key officials and demonstrate how your products provide solutions for their districts.
The WSSDA Annual Conference Planning Committee is committed to having outstanding companies as conference sponsors. Conference sponsors must be companies of reputable standing, who have conducted business within the State of Washington for at least one year, and who can provide written recommendation from three Washington school districts. Applicants must be approved by WSSDA, and WSSDA reserves the right to use discretion in granting affiliation.
