Just astounded at the wonderful sessions and the timeliness of all the information. Great presentations that are valuable to our organizations. Will help us strengthen our schools!
The SAIS conference continues to represent the best value of any state, regional, or national conference of which I am aware.
Excellent presenters, with pertinent content, strategies, and ideas that can easily be used upon returning to my school.
I find that SAIS events are always above average and exceedingly well-organized, well-planned, and full of relevant and intriguing content.
This was really a great conference. I found the vendors open and helpful. The speakers were very inspiring while being relevant to all schools. I also met new people and re-connected with others, all invaluable connections.
