Leadership, Service and Advocacy: Local Voices, Local Choices

March 14 & 15, 2019 - Delta Winnipeg

local voices, local choices

The theme for the association's 2019 convention is Leadership, Service and Advocacy: Local Voices, Local Choices. Convention delegates will explore a fundamental responsibility of school boards:  ensuring that the schools they govern provide the programming, supports and services all students need, in a way that is responsive to and reflective of the educational priorities of local communities.

Through a combination of thought-provoking plenary sessions and workshops, delegates will deepen their understanding about the voices they need to hear, and the choices they need to make, for schools and communities.


One day will be devoted exclusively to professional development, and one day will be dedicated to the business of the association. Watch for program details early in the New Year.
