2017 CALL FOR PROPOSALS

District 'SHARE THE SUCCESS' PRESENTATIONS SOUGHT FOR 2017

The 2016 Joint Annual Conference is a fresh memory, but it is not too early to begin thinking about the 2017 Conference. In fact, school districts and related education organizations are being invited now to submit their proposals (RFPs) for "Share the Success" panel presentations.

Success stories from local school districts and related organizations have long been a strong drawing card at the annual IASB/IASA/IASBO Conference. School board members and administrators from every division come to learn and benefit from the practical experiences "Share the Success" panel presentations provide.

Each year, a select number of districts and organizations are chosen to make presentations. These 60-minute panel sessions - presented by board members, administrators, and other school or community members who were involved in the particular programs to be showcased - are based on actual school system experiences. Presenters give insight and practical information on how to solve common problems. They share discoveries and innovations from programs succeeding in their school districts. They also provide tips on how school leaders can achieve such successes in their own districts.

Proposals for the 2017 Joint Annual Conference are due in the Springfield office by Friday, February 10, 2017.

A committee of Association members will evaluate all proposals received by that date. Invitations will then be issued to the districts and organizations recommended by the evaluators. Acceptance of an invitation to present a "Share the Success" panel represents a joint commitment to create a valuable educational experience for conference attendees. Districts and related organizations are urged to not submit a proposal unless they are fully prepared to make that commitment - and presentation - at the 85th Joint Annual Conference, scheduled for Nov. 17-19, 2017 in Chicago.

Districts and organizations that are not selected may be offered an alternative opportunity to present at Conference. The Carousel of Panels will be held on Saturday, Nov. 18. This venue is designed to allow districts and organizations a chance to make three 30-minute presentations on their topic, allowing attendees an opportunity to obtain a wide variety of information in minimal time.

Panel proposals for the 2017 Joint Annual Conference may be submitted online. Instructions for completing and submitting the form are included and must be followed in order for the panel proposal to be considered.

If you have any questions, please contact Peggy Goone at pgoone@iasb.com or call 217/528-9688, ext. 1103.
