Join a Delegation of Superintendents and School Business Officials this Summer Virtually 

AASA’s Legislative Advocacy Conference is the premier opportunity for school superintendents and school business officials to make their voices heard on Capitol Hill and learn about the latest federal policy issues that will impact their districts. 

Our virtual format this year will still allow school leaders to connect with staff on Capitol Hill as well as a variety of policy experts who can advise them on critical financial and policy decisions ahead.
