Springtime not only marks the end of the legislative session in Little Rock, but also the impending end to the school year for many. However, for the policymakers in the state, there is no summer break. What’s more, is that a good handful of education organizations also take advantage of the summer break by offering interesting and informative conferences. Here is a list of some upcoming state meetings and conferences we urge you to attend.

Friday, June 8th, 2013: Annual Summer Leadership Institute hosted by the University of Central Arkansas College of Education. You can view the 2013 Arkansas Summer Leadership Institute Flyer here.

SummerInstituteThe topic for this year’s Summer Leadership Institute is “Building Trust Among School Stakeholders” and will feature Keynote Speaker Megan Tschannen-Moran who is a Professor of Educational Leadership at the College of William and Mary. Dr. Tschannen-Moran earned her PhD from The Ohio State University and has 14 years of experience in education. Her research on trust in schools explores how teacher, student, principal, and parent trust are related to important outcomes such as teacher professionalism, academic press, and student achievement.

The $50 advanced registration fee ends June 1st!  Act quickly and register here (or, if you need a few days, you can pay the $65 on-site or $35 students registration fees after June 1). It’s going to be a GREAT conference season…and we are pretty excited about our picks so far! Keep checking back as we continue to bring you more information on interesting conferences!
