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

A select number of school districts and organizations will be chosen to make panel presentations at the 2011 conference. These 90-minute panel sessions – presented by the board members, administrators and other school or community members who were involved in the particular programs 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. And they give tips on how school boards can achieve similar successes in their own school districts.

A committee of Association members will evaluate all proposals received in the IASB Springfield office by Feb. 23, 2011. Invitations will be issued to the districts and organizations recommended by those evaluators. Preference will be given to registered conference attendees. Acceptance of an invitation to present a Share the Success panel represents a joint commitment to create a valuable educational experience for conference attendees.

IASB reserves a time period and meeting room and provides publicity and audiovisual equipment for the presentation, while the school district or organization agrees to follow the rules listed on the enclosed proposal form and commits to presenting a panel as described by the proposal submitted.

Please do not submit a proposal unless your district is fully prepared to make that commitment and presentation at Joint Annual Conference, Nov. 18-20, 2011, in Chicago.

Districts and organizations that are not selected to make their presentations during a 90-minute panel session may be offered a different opportunity to present at the conference. IASB will once again be featuring a “ Carousel of Panels” session on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 19.

The Carousel is designed to allow districts and organizations a chance to make three, one-half-hour presentations on their topic in just under a two-hour period, allowing attendees an opportunity to obtain a wide variety of information in minimal time. Participants of the 2010 Carousel of Panels - both presenters and attendees — commented very favorably on the carousel experience and look forward to its return in 2011.

Districts may choose to complete and submit their panel proposal electronically or by mail by clicking on one of the following links. Note: please read the instructions carefully before filling out the form.
