The New Jersey School Boards Association is proud to welcome Jon Staff, the founder and CEO of Getaway, as the keynote speaker at Workshop 2022. He will talk about the importance of rest to students, educators and all who support them.

Staff’s presentation will take place Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 11 a.m. in the Investors Bank Theater on the Exhibit Floor at Workshop.

Getaway provides simple, unplugged escapes to tiny cabins outside of major cities across the United States. It grew from Staff’s lifelong appreciation for the great outdoors, having grown up in a cabin in rural northern Minnesota.

Staff earned inclusion in Crain’s inaugural LGBTQ Leaders & Executives list and is the author of Getting Away: 75 Everyday Practices for Finding Balance in Our Always-On World, a guide to unplugging and reconnecting with what really matters on a daily basis. He is also an Ali Forney Center Capital Campaign Committee member, Point Foundation mentor and a Harvard Business School Entrepreneur-in-Residence.

He earned his AB and MBA from Harvard University and lives in Brooklyn and Boston with his partner, Michael.
