The New Jersey School Boards Association’s annual Workshop conference will be held from Monday, Oct. 21 to Thursday, Oct. 25 at the Atlantic City Convention Center. This four-day experience is the largest training conference for school officials in the Garden State.

Workshop is the perfect opportunity to meet education professionals from districts throughout the state. You and your team will get to network, polish your leadership skills, pick up useful governance tips, have meaningful discussions, and ask questions of thought leaders, NJSBA staff and others in the education community.

For board members, Workshop can help spur new ideas, provide hands-on learning opportunities and chances to obtain board member credit, as well as showcase brand new opportunities to find breakthrough solutions to bring back to your district. Coupled with a retro video game aesthetic, this year’s Workshop theme is “Quest for Student Success,” which embodies our collective mission and passion for seeking the best for our students. Join us as we navigate this quest together!
