When Tom Gentzel and Dan Domenech have a dialogue, it harkens back to the movie, “Holiday Inn.” That establishment opened only on holidays, but it was worth being there when it did. With a collective 62 years working with school boards and superintendents, NSBA Executive Director Gentzel and Domenech, his counterpart with American Association of School Administrators, gave a Saturday clinic audience a wealth of stories mixed with experience-based insights.
