Greeting Letter From Our Partner Organizations

Your attendance at the 2018 Annual Education Conference and Trade Show demonstrates your commitment to professional development as an investment in the students you serve. We commend your dedication to public education.

This is a critical time in California’s education system. In order for our schools to succeed during these changing and challenging times, we must work together – school board members, school administrators, parents, teachers, business leaders and community members – to ensure that we continue to provide the vital services our students and schools need most. The Annual Education Conference and Trade Show will equip you with strategies and tools to strengthen your role as a policy leader, so that you will continue to make effective policy decisions for your schools, county offices of education and students. Seize this opportunity to collaborate with your fellow board members from across the state. Share successes, challenges and best practices. Learn from each other’s experiences and gather the resources necessary to strengthen your role as a governance leader. Professional learning opportunities such as this conference allow all of us gather the knowledge and tools we need to guide the development of innovative, effective and positive learning environments for all of our students.

As long-time partners of CSBA, we truly value the opportunities this Annual Education Conference and Trade Show brings to educational leaders throughout the state. We know you’ll benefit from this leadership development experience. Thank you for investing in the students of California.
