2018 NSBA Annual Conference - National School Board Association

203 $ $65 - $965

Overview

Event Overview:

This year’s conference theme highlights inspirational individuals from all walks of life, pioneers in their respective fields, who made extraordinary contributions to society. Their courage and commitment to excellence helped shape their communities and our nation. A nation where an educator can become an astronaut, a man who spends his life fighting for what is good and just can reach the Supreme Court, and a farmer’s son can rise above hardships and poverty to become the first and foremost education reformer.

As a school board member YOU make an extraordinary contribution to our country by helping shape the leaders of tomorrow. Your decisions play a critical role in the lives of children and the future of our communities. To be an extraordinary school board member requires a commitment to student achievement and ensuring every student receives a high-quality education. It is essential to stay informed of the latest issues, trends, and best practices in public education, and the NSBA Annual Conference and Exposition is the only national event that offers education leaders these resources and access to the experts.

Keynote Speakers

Julián Castro

Former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, and Former Mayor of San Antonio

Even before he burst onto the national scene in 2012 as the Democratic Party’s first Hispanic keynote convention speaker, Julián Castro was already the embodiment of the American dream. The grandson of an orphaned immigrant from Mexico, Julian and his twin brother (current U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro) often accompanied their mother, Rosie, as she worked on behalf of their community as a political activist.

In 2001, at age 26, Castro became the youngest elected city councilman in San Antonio history at the time. In 2009, he was elected Mayor of San Antonio (the youngest mayor of a top- 50 American city). As Mayor, Castro became known as a national leader in urban revitalization and for expanding educational opportunities for the city’s low-income students.

TIME magazine placed him in its “40 Under 40” list of rising stars in American politics and he was named to the World Economic Forum’s list of Young Global Leaders. Appointed the 16th Secretary of HUD by President Barack Obama in 2014, Castro launched many new initiatives that help people achieve a better quality of life. President Barack Obama said of Castro: "Julián is a proven leader, a champion for safe, affordable housing and strong, sustainable neighborhoods." His strong track record of accomplishments in such a short time has made him an inspiring leader and example of what DOES work in government and communities.
