The Minnesota Department of Education and
the Minnesota Association of School Administrators present
The 2014 Back-to-School Leadership Conference
Tuesday – Wednesday, August 5-6, 2014
Minneapolis Marriott Northwest, Brooklyn Park, Minnesota
All are welcome. Bring your team!
Make plans now to attend the 2014 Back-to-School Leadership Conference. Our agenda will inform and inspire you as you anticipate the new school year. Our program will include global and local perspectives on leading positive futures for all of our students. We will hear from MDE leaders on a variety of topics affecting your district, but this year with a spin – or rather a flip! A number of our MASA members have asked for more time for discussion and Q&A with the MDE presenters, so we will be flipping our breakout sessions. Once MASA receives the link from MDE, participants will receive online access information via email to view presentations prior to the conference, and breakouts will focus on discussion rather than presentation. Concurrently, an unconference will allow participants to frame their own discussion groups around whatever topic they choose. Don’t miss this energizing way to get in gear for 2014-15. Register today!
Registration Fee: $319.00
Lodging: Minneapolis Marriott Northwest group rate for $125.00 per night LODGING IS FULL
The Marriott Northwest is fully booked. Here are some other recommendations from the Marriott Northwest:
PLEASE NOTE: The Back to School Conference has been designed to be compatible with the agenda for the FinnFest Education Forum August 6-7 in Minneapolis.
Very Important to Note:
The conference lodging rate of $125 is available until July 18, 2014. Reservations received after July 18 will be accommodated on a space-available basis without a guarantee of the conference rate. You may cancel your reservation until 4 pm the day before arrival, so it would be advisable to make your reservations before July 18. Please note that lodging changes/cancellations are the responsibility of the individual participant, without exception.
Conference Fee Cancellation Policy:
You may cancel your conference registration with a $50.00 penalty until 4:30 pm on July 28, 2014, after which you will not receive a refund. (July 28 is the date in which we must guarantee our participation numbers for the hotel.) No-shows will be billed.
