2017 Keynote Speaker Announced

MASA is thrilled to welcome keynote speaker Dr. Tim Quinn to our 2017 Fall Conference.

Dr. Quinn is a nationally recognized pioneer in superintendent preparation, coaching and support. During his keynote address, “No Easy Walk to Freedom,” he will discuss the superintendent’s role in ensuring that every student has the knowledge and skills to succeed in the international marketplace.

“If America is going to hold on to the position its held for the past 200 years as a bastion of freedom, we will have to dramatically improve our education system,” Dr. Quinn says.

New Sponsorship Opportunities Available

MASA is offering new sponsorship opportunities at our 2017 Fall Conference! Our goal is to connect MASA members with the partners, businesses and services that support the important work being done by leaders in public education. MASA is moving away from the traditional vendor show and instead giving sponsors the opportunity to network with MASA members outside the boundaries of a booth. A full slate of sponsorship opportunities will be available in June.
