MASA Member Access Opportunities Available at Upcoming Fall Conference, Year-round Signature Events
MASA Signature Events
MASA offers many professional development programs and workshops throughout the year that draw top-level district administrators. Sponsors of Signature Events are given time during each event to detail their services and products for attendees.
Through the Horizon Leadership Academies, MASA offers Navigate Leadership for aspiring superintendents, Sustain Excellence for current superintendents, and the new Spark Growth for central office administrators who oversee human resources, finances and other essential district duties. MASA also offers the New Superintendents Leadership Academy, a targeted four-session series designed for superintendents who are just starting out on the job.
Additionally, MASA runs signature projects throughout the year, allowing sponsors to sustain targeted efforts to strengthen, empower and inform district leaders throughout Michigan. The Women’s Leadership Network was created to support and empower women superintendents and administrators through peer-to-peer networking and powerful professional development opportunities. The Women in Leadership Retreat held in May 2017 was the first of an annual event that brings together women leaders to learn from one another and share their experience and expertise with their colleagues.
