Annual Leadership Conference

Oct. 24 – 27, 2024
Lansing Center, Lansing

 

The Call for Proposals is now open for the 2024 Michigan Association of School Boards Annual Leadership Conference; submissions are due by Friday, April 12!

This year’s event will take place Oct. 24 – 27 at the Lansing Center in Lansing. MASB needs your expertise to create exceptional learning experiences throughout the conference. To this end, we are seeking Clinic Session presentation proposals from school districts, school board members, thought leaders and organizations.

The Clinic Sessions offered to conference attendees Friday, Oct. 25 and Saturday, Oct. 26 will be 60 minutes each.

SUBMIT PROPOSAL

MASB strives to provide the highest quality educational leadership for boards of education in Michigan. The Annual Leadership Conference is the Association’s flagship event—a comprehensive four-day learning and networking experience bringing together hundreds of board of education members, school district leaders and content experts. The goal is to inform and equip school board members so they may govern and lead their districts effectively.

School district governance is complex, and there is significant competition to present Clinic Sessions. Therefore, a limited number of proposals will be selected. The best proposals:

  • Honor the governance role of boards of education. Prior to submitting a proposal, familiarize yourself with the roles and responsibilities of school board members as outlined here.
  • Include the voice of school board members. Partner with a school district that has experience with your session topic and invite a school board member and superintendent to co-present with you.
  • Allow and manage time for participant interaction and understanding. Explain how you will incorporate opportunities for participants to interact while also ensuring learning outcomes.
  • Refrain from selling. School board members come to the conference to learn and network. If you want to develop a relationship with school board members, share a success story, not a sales pitch. Presenting at MASB’s Annual Leadership Conference is the ideal way to share best practices, disseminate effective strategies and deepen understanding regarding emerging issues in education.

An annual statewide conference like this offers access to training that can benefit both you as an individual board member and your district. Research indicates that boards with high expectations, united teamwork with the superintendent, good understanding of data, and a focus on team development and knowledge building often govern districts with high student achievement.

This conference also presents a great opportunity to learn from your fellow board members. Use this time to build personal relationships, share lessons learned and best practices. This way, everyone can benefit from your experiences and expertise in your role, and you can learn from theirs.
