Three Reasons To Be a Presenter at SLI

The TASB Events team is looking for school leaders interested in presenting at the 2024 Summer Leadership Institute (SLI). The annual event draws hundreds of school board trustees at its two locations in San Antonio (June 12-15) and in Fort Worth (June 19-22).

Attendees not only have the opportunity to earn continuing education credits but also to network and learn with other school board members. Those who earn a spot as a presenter get additional benefits, including:

1. Bragging Rights

That’s right! This is your opportunity to share the initiatives your board and district have been working on. “We love to hear good news stories from Texas public schools,” said Kathy Dundee, TASB’s director of conference and event planning. “We want to hear about the work you are doing and the successes you are having in areas like student achievement, community engagement, and more.”

2. Helping Others

Boards and districts across the state are facing similar challenges as you. You could help them make improvements in their processes and work. “All school leaders share a common goal – making Texas public schools the best,” said Dundee. “This is your chance to share what you learned and what did or didn’t work.”

3. Building a Stronger Team

As is often said, teamwork makes the dream work. Working with your colleagues to develop a presentation is a bonding experience. “Developing a presentation together is a team-building experience. You will learn gain a greater understanding of how to work together and communicate,” said Dundee.

Session applications are due March 15. Review the proposal guidelines, and start working on your application today!
