We are sad and disappointed to share with you that we will not be hosting the annual OSSBA/CCOSA Education Leadership Conference next month. This is a difficult decision, but our team is guided by the principle that people matter most. Your well-being is important to us, and it’s also important to the communities where you are leading and serving during an extraordinary time.
The annual conference is always a great opportunity to gather, to celebrate, to share and to learn. We will miss seeing you, but we eagerly look forward to the 2021 OSSBA/CCOSA Education Leadership Conference, which will be held in Oklahoma City’s new convention center!
We know the conference provides a critical opportunity for board members to not only learn from expert presenters and network with one another but also to earn continuing education credits. The OSSBA team has worked this summer to create many online learning opportunities for board members, and more are planned for the near future. In-person and virtual whole board development opportunities also are available for board/superintendent governance teams that enjoy collaborative learning.
You can check out our upcoming online learning opportunities here, see our library of recorded on-demand learning opportunities here and learn more about whole board sessions here. If you’d like to see training on a topic not currently available, please let us know!
A few important details:
- Registration fees: If you and/or your governance team have already registered for conference, please be assured all registrations will be canceled and no cancelation fees will apply. Your district will not be billed.
- Hotel reservations: If you and/or your governance team have hotel reservations, you will be responsible for cancellations. Our hotel partners that offered a block rate have assured us there will be no charge for cancellations made in a timely manner so we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. If you plan to keep your reservation, we encourage you to confirm whether the group rate still applies.
- Pre-conference and golf tournament: All conference-related activities, including pre-conference sessions and the golf tournament are canceled.
We are grateful for your service to Oklahoma students. Please let us know how we can continue to help and support you.
