School Leadership Summit in Two Weeks - Call for Volunteers - Saturday Final Proposal Deadline

The second annual School Leadership Summit is Thursday, March 27th, from 7am to 7pm US-Pacific (10am - 10pm US-Eastern). This free online event is open to all to attend; register at to be kept updated. This is a unique chance to participate in a collaborative global conversation on school leadership by and with your peers.

Please do pass this notice around to colleagues!

The hour-by-hour conference schedule is posted on the site in multiple time zones. While we have a full set of conference presentations, we are still taking presentation proposals through Saturday, March 15th, and accepted sessions at this point will either be placed on a wait list or we may start the conference an hour or two early to give more opportunities to present.

We also have a GREAT lineup of keynote and distinguished speakers, with Eric Sheninger, Ira Socol + Pam Moran, Scott McLeod, Bill Brennan, and a couple of surprise keynotes still to be announced. Eric, in fact, will be presenting Wednesday evening, March 26th, as a special pre-conference keynote, and we may also even do the same thing Tuesday night. We'll keep you posted! So much fun!

As is our custom, we now announce the call for volunteer moderators. If you have attended one of my events before, you will know that the volunteer support is a HUGE part of these highly-participative events. It's hard to describe the camaraderie of those who volunteer to help moderate these virtual conferences, and what a pleasure and privilege it is to be a part of this. We don't require that volunteers are Blackboard Collaborate (the conference platform) pros, but we do ask that you take the one-hour training (live or recorded). Thank you!

You may already be aware that the School Leadership Summit and the rest of my virtual and physical events are now aggregated under the project. If you haven't been to, we've got a great event calendar of free and community events listed by many of our over 200 partner organizations, plus lots of other great content and a weekly newsletter to keep you collaborating with peers in the larger conversations about learning. Do join us!

Many thanks to conference sponsors TICAL and ACSA. Hope you can "tune in" in two weeks!
