2019 AAEA/ASBA Joint Leadership Conference


The 24th Annual Joint Leadership Conference
, a collaborative effort of the Arkansas Association of Educational Administrators (AAEA) and the Arkansas School Boards Association (ASBA), will provide a valuable professional development opportunity for school board members, superintendents, and district personnel to network, and to gain needed insight into the issues and events impacting education today.


Since the state’s legislative session will have just recently adjourned, a number of the topics on the agenda will focus on the session’s outcome and the implications for you and your schools. Dr.’s Abernathy and Prothro will present highlights from the session, and other presenters will follow with information including fiscal topics, such mandated minimum wage rates, and teacher salary increases. A full agenda is being developed and will be available soon.
