Nearly 10,000 public school leaders attended the 2012 Joint Annual Conference of the Illinois Association of School Boards, Illinois Association of School Administrators and Illinois Association of School Business Officials.
Recognized as one of the nation's largest state education conferences, the event is open to local school board members, superintendents and secretaries, school administrators, state and regional educators and officials, school attorneys, university professors, exhibitors, and guests.
The 2013 conference will be held Nov. 22-24 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, Sheraton Chicago and Swissotel hotels. This is the 81st joint conference with IASA and Illinois ASBO. The conference will also celebrate IASB's 100 year history.
This conference is one of the largest state-level gatherings of school decision makers in the United States. In attendance are school board members, administrators, business officials, college and university personnel and officials and staff of state education agencies.
The Illinois Association of School Boards is a voluntary organization of local boards of education dedicated to strengthening the public schools through local citizen control. Although not a part of state government, IASB is organized by member school boards as a private not-for-profit corporation under authority granted by Article 23 of The Illinois School Code.
The Illinois Association of School Administrators is the state’s premier advocacy organization for school administrators with more than 2,000 members and a history of promoting excellence in education dating back to 1946. The guiding principles of the IASA are expressed by its vision of "Maximum Educational Success for all Students," and its mission statement, "To support school leaders in the pursuit of educational excellence through continued school improvement."
The IASA is a state-chartered association of the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) and we work cooperatively on educational issues of national, state and local importance.
Founded in 1952, Illinois ASBO is devoted to the school business management profession and strives to promote the standards of school business administration through a multitude of benefits for every member.
