As we do every year, OSSBA and CCOSA are planning our Education Leadership Conference - with speakers to inspire you, sessions to provide important information on pressing issues and exhibitors to showcase valuable products and services for your districts.

While it may be a time when we don't know what the future holds, we do know that the Education Leadership Conference will unite education leaders from across Oklahoma and you will leave armed with new strategies and tools to be your best.
OSSBA Executive Director Dr. Shawn Hime and Associate Executive Director Dr. Joe Siano

You also won’t want to miss the Thursday pre-conference sessions featuring OSSBA Executive Director Dr. Shawn Hime, Associate Executive Director Dr. Joe Siano and the OSSBA legal team diving into school finance and new legislation.

Also on Thursday, you are invited to join OSSBA, CCOSA, our sponsors, partners and exhibitors for a welcome reception and early check-in for the Education Leadership Conference. No RSVP is necessary, just visit the Exhibit Hall at the Cox Center from 4 - 7 p.m., Thurs., Aug. 27 and enjoy! Admission, light snacks and two drink tickets are included for each registered conference or pre-conference attendee.
