Help MASA find fantastic speakers for the 2021 Fall Conference

Has your district/organization had an intense focus on student and staff wellness during the pandemic? Do have experience attracting and retaining top talent? How is your team using CARES funding in the new school year? These are just a few examples of topics we plan to cover at the 2021 Fall Conference this September. We’re looking for forward-thinking presenters who will inspire excellence in our public school leaders at this annual event.

Submit a proposal and you may be selected to speak at the conference, September 22-24, 2021, at the Grand Traverse Resort in Traverse City.

Proposals will be accepted based on their connection to the conference theme: “From Surviving to Thriving: Operationalizing Michigan’s Blueprint for Student Recovery.”

Sessions should focus on:

• Student and staff wellness
• Academics
• School climate
• Family and community engagement
• Postsecondary education
• Adequate, equitable funding
• Consistent funding
• Attracting and retaining top talent
• Innovation in teaching & learning
• Universal Pre-K

The strongest proposals are those that involve an MASA member and/or practitioners from a district or ISD/RESA. Learning Sessions will be held on Thursday, September 23. Please include at least three attendee takeaways from your session.

To submit a proposal for a Learning Session, fill out the RFP form below and submit it no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, July 16, 2021. You will receive a confirmation email once you have successfully submitted your proposal. Those accepted will be notified between August 6 and August 9, 2021.
