Speaker

TBD

This long-running advocacy-related event is an opportunity for NCE attendees to take a deep dive into a education policy related topic. For this ticketed luncheon, the AASA advocacy team brings in a dynamic speaker to provide remarks on a relevant, engaging and often times hot education policy, an opportunity to hear what it will mean for schools, and engage in Q&A. The speaker is announced in early winter, and the event regularly sells out.

Dr. Effie H. Jones Memorial Equity Luncheon

12:30 – 2:30pm

$70

Speaker

TBD

The Dr. Effie H. Jones Humanitarian Award honors the memory of Dr. Jones, a school administrator, teacher, counselor, organizer of the Office of Minority Affairs at AASA, and a champion of women and minorities in educational leadership. Equity and opportunity were the hallmark of her life’s work, and closing the academic, health and social gap between children who have and those who don’t was one of the cardinal intents of her rigorous efforts to increase the number of women and minority school system leaders. Because of her vision and commitment, AASA’s focus on equity, on superintendent pipeline issues, and on vulnerable children and youth is sharp and unrelenting.
