BIG NAThe title of this year's conference, "Igniting Leadership," represents our intent to inspire you to become re-invigorated in your jobs as well as to reflect eight brief "Ignite" sessions presented by your colleagues throughout the conference. During the five-minute Ignite Sessions, one representative from each region will discuss what motivates him or her to get up in the morning and tackle the problems and issues that you face on a daily basis. This conference feature should prove to be both fun and interesting.
Another unique feature is the pre-conference session on Sunday afternoon, “Inspirational Professional Development Planned Around Ted Talks,” which will model quality professional development through the viewing and discussion of motivational Ted Talks. The Town of West Point Public Schools Superintendent Laura Abel, who serves on the VASS Professional Development Committee, will facilitate this inspiring and productive session.
