About the Conference:

This year’s conference, "STEM Innovation...Leveraging Business, Government, and Education," will examine the key issues confronting education leaders at all levels. The conference will focus on the transition from policy to practice with panel discussions on Congress’s legislative agenda, the Administration’s education priorities, the implications of these issues to the various Federal Agencies with STEM Education programs, and how state and local education leaders can build on these policies and influence educational excellence in their own communities.
The conference will conclude with attendees making visits to Capitol Hill to meet with Congressional delegates to discuss these key issues.

The conference will be held at the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, DC. See the "Lodging" page for information about hotel room reservations.

Registration discounts are available for Triangle Coalition members, early-birds, and groups of 3 or more!
