This may be our best conference ever!  Our Theme this year is:

Leading in Transformational Times.

Note highlights below:

There will be an “informal” golf outing on March 15 at the Hyatt (River March Golf Club) at 10:30 AM

1) We join once again with MAESP.  We have a joint exhibit hall with our traditional reception along with our exhibitors hosted by Jostens from 6:45 till 8:45 on Thursday evening.  Can you get to Cambridge early?  Meet with state superintendent Karen Salmon for an interactive session at 5:30 PM.

2) We have a full breakfast for participants this year on Friday morning.  Rick Wormeli will provide the keynote focusing on "motivating teachers to shift their classroom culture."  He will follow up with a presentation on Grading and Assessment in a smaller group.  Finally, after lunch, Rick offers a one hour session he titles "Principles First, Strategies Second: Minimizing our Hypocrisies"  If you have never heard Rick, check out this sample video to hear his insightful message:

4) The MASSP lunch and business meeting takes place at 12:30, ending with dessert in the exhibit hall to encourage interaction with our exhibitors. (Wormeli's afternoon session and more concurrent sessions follows this)

5) Lifetouch and Balfour sponsor our pre-banquet reception, the banquet follows where we honor our Principals of the Year.  The evening closes with drinks sponsored by Edmentum

6) An optional breakfast takes place on Saturday morning, but whether you choose to pay for the breakfast or not, all are invited to hear NASSP president Dan Kelly share his presentation on social media in schools, with a focus on Twitter.  The conference ends here prior to noon.
