NSBA's Advocacy Institute 2018

NSBA's Advocacy Institute 2018 entitled, "Elected. Engaged. Empowered: Representing the Voice in Public Education," will be held on February 4-6, 2018 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C. The conference will convene Members of Congress, national thought-leaders, state association executives and well-known political pundits to provide local school board members with an update on key policy and legal issues impacting public education, and tactics and strategies to enhance their ability to influence the policy-making process and national education debate during their year-round advocacy efforts.

Here are six reasons why you should attend:

  1. Champion the interests of students and public schools with your Members of Congress.
  2. Network with your fellow school board members to share best practices to engage policy makers and impact the policymaking process.
  3. Enhance your ability to tell your story to influence the national education debate.
  4. Gain the perspective of legal experts on key legal issues impacting your school districts.
  5. Advocate to keep public dollars in public schools.
  6. Get insights from Members of Congress, national thought-leaders, and well-known political pundits to sharpen your strategy, tactics and messaging.
