Request for Proposals

‘Share the Success’ Request for Proposals Information

Share the Success panel sessions are a strong draw at the Joint Annual Conference, where school board members and the full Illinois public education community can learn and benefit from the exchange of practical, proven, and experienced-based ideas.

School districts and related education organizations are invited to submit proposals to present a Share the Success presentation at the 2023 Joint Annual Conference. These 60-minute panel sessions address current challenges in education; are based on actual school system experiences; and are presented by board members, administrators, and contributing school or community members. Presenters share recent discoveries, lessons learned, and innovations succeeding in their districts and offer ideas on how school boards can achieve similar success.

A committee of peer evaluators – IASB members – will evaluate all proposals received. Based upon the committee’s recommendations, invitations will be issued to the selected districts to present at the Joint Annual Conference. Please do not submit a proposal unless fully prepared to present at the Joint Annual Conference, November 17-19, 2023 in Chicago.

Proposals not selected for a Share the Success presentation may be offered an opportunity to present at the Carousel of Panels on Saturday afternoon, November 18, 2023. The Carousel provides three 30-minute presentations on the topic, allowing attendees to obtain a wide variety of information in minimal time.

Those planning to submit panel presentations for review are encouraged to first preview the Request for Proposals questions prior to completing the online submission form. The deadline to submit proposals is March 6, 2023.
