The Calming the Waters of Turbulent Seas Conference, scheduled for Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City is aimed at equipping participants with the necessary tools and knowledge to navigate the complex and dynamic world of educational leadership. The conference is designed to help board members and district leaders develop and improve communication and relationships with their educational stakeholders, as well as to provide insights on governance.

The conference will feature keynote speakers and expert panelists who will share their knowledge and experience on various topics related to educational leadership, including effective communication, strategic planning, conflict resolution and more. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in interactive workshops and breakout sessions where they can learn from one another, share ideas and develop new skills.

The current atmosphere is filled with challenges for those leading our schools. Calming the Waters of Turbulent Seas is the first of a series of leadership programs aimed at meeting member needs. By providing a forum for learning, networking and collaboration, this conference will help attendees stay informed about the latest trends and best practices in educational leadership and will empower them to make a positive impact in their districts.
