Speak at our Annual Convention!

Participate in our convention in a whole new way – as a convention speaker! Share your knowledge in one of our breakout sessions for other educational leaders across the state at our convention, November 11-13. 

KASB is now accepting breakout session proposals for the 2022 KASB Annual Convention. Breakout sessions will last approximately 45 minutes and will occur on our second day of the convention, Saturday, November 12.

We encourage you to share your experience and expertise with your peers, even if you don’t consider yourself an expert or have all the solutions. Chances are, your district is tackling some of the same challenges as others!
